This year more than ever, the models of NYFW are making more headlines than the designer clothes they’re wearing. Some of these women are breaking barriers, others have already had a fashion faux pas or two, and some are being watched with extra care in case their A-List friends decide to pop up at the front row of the runway (I’m still holding out hope for a Taylor Swift sighting). These are the models you should be paying attention to this NYFW.
1. Madeline Stuart
Madeline Stuart made headlines this year as the first model with Down’s Syndrome to walk the runway at NYFW. She rocked it at FTL Moda’s show, and I hope that we get to see her do even more at Fashion Weeks in the future, because I don’t know about you, but she’s a model that I want to see in every show!
