Shaholly, an amputee model, is looking forward to her seventh season modeling at New York Fashion Week. She is known as the first amputee model to walk the runway at NYFW without a prosthetic. This fall, she will be featured in a campaign for a popular lifestyle brand.
In addition, Global Disability Inclusion is proudly sponsoring Keren Clay in her modeling debut at the Runway of Dreams Fashion Revolution event. Keren, age 10, is a recent amputee due to a rare solid tumor cancer that she is currently fighting. Keren is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment, and her goal is to walk the runway using her brand-new prosthetic leg. The remarkable 5thgrader can’t wait to experience New York Fashion Week for the very first time!
