Double amputee girl at New York Fashion Week

On our Sina Weibo

A 9-year-old double amputee from Birmingham, United Kingdom, made a historic runway appearance at New York Fashion Week on Sunday. Daisy-May Demetre was born with fibular hemimelia, where part or all of the fibular bone in the leg is missing. She received prosthetic legs and uses them to help her walk and move. Now, she's strutting her stuff down catwalks. Her father, Alex, said he has always encouraged her to follow her dreams. "She inspired me by showing me who she is," he said. Daisy-May has been modeling for 18 months already, having worked for Nike, River Island and several other UK high street brands.
