We think we can all agree that fashion designers have always chosen gorgeous, traditionally attractive, and healthy models to showcase their clothes on the runway and other less traditional fashion events. These models set high standards to be more graceful than the average person and actively played a role in establishing a discrepancy between what models look like and real everyday people.

However, as a society, we are progressing further and further every year, and it is not surprising that in recent times, many major brands and modeling agencies have begun to represent many people with disabilities as part of their brand, providing a more realistic representation on the catwalks and magazine covers.

Today we want to share with you the story of 24-year-old Puerto Rican model Sophia Giraud who has Down Syndrome.
