Fashion industry sees first ever wheelchair model at NYFW

The amazing Dr. Danielle Sheypuk is not only the first model in a wheelchair to be seen on the runway at New York Fashion Week - she is now the spokesperson for Models of Diversity (MoD) in the USA.
 
Models of Diversity UK campaigns for diversity in all areas of the fashion industry and has proved that it can be done: taking part in major fashion events and campaigns, and now producing its very own live debate show. Angel Sinclair, CEO of Models of Diversity, is "very excited to have Danielle on board; it's fantastic that she will be spreading the Models of Diversity message." 
 
Danielle recognizes that, as in the UK, the fashion industry needs to accept diversity in concepts of beauty and style, and she is bringing the MoD voice Stateside. "People want and need to hear about diversity in fashion," says Sheypuk.
 
Danielle was officially appointed as the spokesperson for Models of Diversity America on April 22, 2014, after Models of Diversity in the UK contacted her via Twitter - and a new transatlantic relationship was born. Danielle's role will see her campaigning for diversity as a whole, and her first project is huge. Danielle and Models of Diversity America have an exciting new project which will be announced very soon. "It is certainly the first of its kind ever to be seen in the US," according to Angel Sinclair. "Certainly it is one that cannot - and should not - be missed!"
 
About Models of Diversity
Models of Diversity is the campaign for greater diversity in the models we see every day. MoD calls on the fashion, beauty and marketing industries to recognize the beauty in people of all races, ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. MoD's mission is to change the face of fashion and modelling.
