NYFW’s First Down Syndrome Model

Jamie Brewer made fashion week history by becoming the first model with Down syndrome to walk the runway at New York Fashion Week. Brewer, who is most known for her role in the TV drama “American Horror Story,” walked for designer Carrie Hammer as part of her Role Models Not Runway Models campaign, which brings real customers to the catwalk. Hammer hopes the campaign will empower women and help shake-up standards set by the fashion industry.
