Some people may be wondering why a blog about overcoming adversity is sharing an articles about a fashion show. Believe it or not, there is a connection between the fashion show and models who have one or more adversity.
Excerpt of Article by Associated Press
A Japanese designer is challenging accepted ideals at Tokyo Fashion Week, with a collection unveiled by models who are blind, wear prosthetic limbs or use a wheelchair.
In his unorthodox show for the “tenbo” brand, Takafumi Tsuruta chose a mix of disabled and able-bodied models, several donning a bright yellow wig, to showcase his quirky designs.
He is the latest designer to celebrate disability at a major fashion week, after an actress with Down’s Syndrome and a male amputee graced runways this year in New York and Milan.
