London is embracing models of all types. And it’s nice to see they’re welcoming disabled models.

The UK will host two disabled fashion shows this month.

Hammersmith and Fulham Action on Disability, HAFAD, is putting together a show on the 22nd called Fashion with Passion and will feature designers and models, including disabled ones.

According to the HAFAD site, several brands and celebrities will be involved in the show:

“The many fabulous brands involved include Full Circle, Asos.com, La Mack London, Clan Douglas Cashmere Studio, Yuko Yoshitaki, John Smedley, Laura Fox, Wheelie Chix-Chic and Glam Sticks.

We have the support of David Proud who plays Adam Best in Eastenders and Kelly Marie Stewart who plays Hayley Ramsay in Hollyoaks will both model for the show.”

Then on October 25th, London fashion show Disabled & Sexy, will feature their own show in support of spinal muscular atrophy awareness.

The goal behind the show is that “people with even the most severe of disabilities can follow fashion, display individuality, and have sex appeal just as much as anybody else.”

Agreed!
