Celebrating Diversity, Difference and Body Types in The Fashion Industry

We are absolutely loving the fact the difference is now being celebrated widely in the fashion industry. The stories of the people who are spear heading these movement are inspirational. Let me share 2 short stories with you guys.

Daisy-May Demetre

Daisy-May Demetre is a little beautiful 9 year old girl from Birmingham England who walks the fashion runways of the world in her blades. Daisy is a double leg amputee model and has with such brands as Nike, River Island and famous fashion designers.

This little powerhouse shows us all, no matter walk if you have the ability walk talk and proud of who you are. Daisy has is managed by this modelling agency if you would like to have her model your fashion brand Kids London Model Management


Ailbhe and Izzy Keane of Izzy Wheels

Their Story

Izzy Wheels is a Dublin based brand founded by Irish sisters Ailbhe (pronounced Alva) and Izzy Keane. The idea was inspired by Izzy who was born with Spina Bifida and is paralyzed from her waist down. Izzy always saw her wheelchair as a symbol of freedom but never felt it expressed her bubbly personality. Ailbhe created Izzy Wheels as her final year college project in The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in 2015.

To have a relationship like this with your sister must be amazing, Izzy in particular inspire me to be more outgoing personally. Izzy does not use her wheelchair as a excuse to stand back she has joined the term “IF YOU CANT STAND UP, STAND OUT” power to you girl. We wish the girls continued success with their business.”

The Magnitude of what these girls are inspiring

In previous blog post if you have been following, you will know that that I have highlighted the fact that the fashion industry and social media can be a mean place sometimes when you are different from perceived model template.

But YES, here is two young beautiful awe inspiring ladies that saying I don’t care for template or status quo. I will strut my stuff down you cat walk like I own it, Daisy-May we are loving you here at loving the sales.

Then you have Izzy the girl who really does “Stand Out” The girl who really does represent what a positive attitude and some creativity can bring to the world.
