Supermodels Unlimited Magazine Presents A NYFW Celebrity Runway Show Celebrating Diversity and Disability Awareness, #Metoo and #Timesup
“The #metoo and #timesup movements have opened a dialog that crosses borders, genders and redefines the boundaries of fashion itself,” says Kim Clark, editor of Supermodels Unlimited Magazine. “This is a defining moment in American history, with women all over the country speaking up about their experiences, using their voices and giving power to each other in brave new ways.”
This Saturday, her magazine will honor these women with a celebrity fashion show during their annual New York Fashion Week runway presentation.
Dubbed The Little Black Dress Movement, the show will spotlight women who are inspiring the next generation of women to be true to themselves. Among the models walking the runway will be transgender model Isis King, and America’s Next Top Model Laura Kirkpatrick and Jeana Turner. Kirkpatrick has been vocal about her battle with Dyslexia and Turner opened up her fight with Alopecia on the show.
The evening’s special guest will be Izzy Proctor, a toddler model with Down Syndrome and one of the youngest to ever walk New York Fashion Week.
Supermodels Unlimited Magazine will conclude The LBD Movement runway show with a check presentation to the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network, a charity that supports parents who have recently received a Down Syndrome diagnosis for their child or unborn baby. They will then host a cocktail hour from 8-9PM, where the #fearlessfemales will speak about their lives, the communities they represent and their contributions, along with Izzy Proctor, a toddler model with Down Syndrome and one of the youngest to ever walk New York Fashion Week.
Supermodels Unlimited Magazine Presents The Little Black Dress Movement; A Celebrity Fashion Show Celebrating Diversity and Disability Awareness, #Metoo and #Timesup takes place Saturday, September 8th at 6pm at The Mezzanine NYC (55 Broadway, NYC).
