A new modelling agency to feature models with Down Syndrome launched in Dublin, on World Down Syndrome Day:

...“When our members came out on the catwalk, the place just erupted. It added so much to the event. It just struck me at the time that our young people got so much out of it and it benefited everyone. It showed that young people come in all shapes and sizes, and those with Down syndrome can participate alongside their peers.

A day’s casting has resulted in an agency with 20 models, including children, teenagers and adults, on the books...
