Shania Twain at the NYFW
Supermodel Madeline Stuart took the world by a storm on the runway while breaking down stereotypes in fashion and beauty by taking the centre stage yet again this week last Wednesday in New York stronger than ever. She was most excited about walking for the American heart association’s Go Red for Women alongside Meghan Trainor, Paris Hilton, Nicki Hilton, Shania Twain, Heather Graham, Ali Stroker, Loren Gray, Robin Givens, Roselyn Sanchez, Jeri Ryan and 28 other celebrities. She also walked for Glaudi by Johana Hernandez, Willet Designs Couture, Merlin Castell, Christina Weeks and Hi Tech Moda.
The Go Red for Women is a nationwide heart and stroke initiative for women as the American Heart association claims heart disease appears to be the greatest threat to women's health. Having undergone an open-heart surgery herself and being the only model with Down syndrome to have walked the catwalk for 8 seasons of NYFW, she will use this platform to represent inclusion and diversity.
Madeline has walked in over 100 fashion shows across the globe including London Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Mercedes Fashion Week - China, Caspian Fashion Week - Russia, and Runway Dubai to name a few. She has also featured in campaigns for Diesel, Modcloth and FabFitFun. She has been an essential personality in achieving this significant societal change as one of the most prominent and influential faces of diversity, alongside Winnie Harlow and Ashley Graham. She is also a high prole advocate of the disability community in Australia and overseas and was nominated for the Pride of Australia and Young Australian of the Year Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Internationally Madeline was awarded the Advocacy Award for her work in Uganda from Kulture City in 201, and received the Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award from Global Down Syndrome in 2018. Madeline continually supports countless charity organisations from Veteran Affairs, Special Olympics, Melange, and Step Up for Downs in America. She works tirelessly with the charities to further spread her message of diversity and inclusion. She is also the founder and ambassador for Inside Outside Dance in Brisbane – a dance school for people with disabilities
After this fashion week, she will head back to Australia, where she will continue modelling until she returns to Florida on March 6th to work with celebrity cruises heading to the Caribbean. Her schedule looks exciting this year as she will be taking over runways in Germany, London, Paris and Copenhagen.
