First model with Down syndrome rocked New York Fashion Week

18-year-old model Madeline Stuart has been turning heads for the last the past few months after signing with an athletic company based in the U.S. called Manifesta. She, like many girls her age, has aspired to be a model for some time, but she is set apart based on the fact that she has Down syndrome.
The model from Brisbane, Australia made history yesterday when she became the first Down syndrome model to walk New York Fashion Week. She represented FTL Moda’s presentation of international designers. How did she do, you ask?

She totally nailed it.
