Show trailer
The world's first supermodel with Downs Syndrome challenges the norms of beauty and inclusion in an otherwise closed world.

The Australian model Maddy Stuart has walked the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, been on the cover of international fashion magazines, and has more than 700,000 followers on Facebook. But life is not straightforward, as Maddy has to fight her own battles every day. She is the first professional supermodel with Downs Syndrome. A young girl, who – with her mother as an eternal supporter – challenges the norms of beauty as she breaks down barriers all over the world for people with disabilities. But does Maddy's career actually ensure greater diversity and inclusion within the industry - or is she just the latest trend in the fashion world?
