Earlier this year, the world was introduced to 18-year-old Brisbane model Madeline Stuart. This week it was announced that she will be walking the runway at New York Fashion Week.


While advocate and American Horror Story actress Jamie Brewer was the first Down syndrome model to walk the NYFW runway, Madeline is the first to be booked for two different Fashion Week campaigns.

Madeline made the exciting announcement on her Instagram and Facebook pages, posting the date she will be walking the runway for FTL Moda.

EverMaya – the second label booking Madeline – is also releasing a limited edition line of handbags in her honour.

The winning name of the line, "The Madeline", was voted by Maddy's Facebook followers – a number that currently sits around 435,000.

Madeline, you are flawless, and we cannot wait to watch you shine bright at Fashion Week.
