NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The model that has broken the mould and continues to defy the odds, will be walking the Runway in Beijing, China for Art Hearts Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and Runway Dubai from October 25th to November 10th. In Beijing, Madeline will be closing for Art Hearts on October 29th. At Runway Dubai, Madeline will be opening both evening's shows on the 9th and 10th of November.
Madeline currently is traveling the globe beyond the Catwalk, making impactful and empowering appearances at schools, shows, and sporting events on her #BreakingTheMouldTour. Most recently, Maddy walked for The City Mission in Melbourne Fashion Show, and danced at their Spring Gala Ball.
Madeline is a unique 19-year-old model from Brisbane, Australia. Madeline most notably had been dubbed by the press as, "the world's most famous model with Down syndrome". This incredibly courageous, beautiful, and talented young woman has had astonishing success in the short time she has been modeling, and has captured media attention both in Australia and internationally. As with many people with Down syndrome, Madeline struggled with her weight for a long time, and last year decided to get healthy and chase after her dreams. She lost over 20kg, and is now changing society's perception of people with disabilities, one photo shoot at a time.
With her fresh-faced, flame-haired natural beauty, Madeline has been the face of GlossiGirl cosmetics, becoming the first professional adult model with Down syndrome to front a cosmetic company. Madeline has also modeled in New York Fashion Week, Art Hearts Fashion Week, Style Fashion Week, and walked the catwalk for autoimmune awareness. She has been featured in leading publications Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Woman's Day, Women's Weekly, New York Times, Elle, Marie Claire, People, and Cleo to name a few.
In 2016/2017, she has already booked work in Sweden, Russia, Dubai, Uganda, Lebanon, Beijing, and America. She has also been nominated for the Pride of Australia and Young Australian of the Year Award. Additionally she was awarded the prestigious 2015 Model of the Year Award at international fashion show Melange in San Francisco, whose partners include Jean Paul Gaultier, Sephora and Nicole Miller.
Madeline is currently in Russia as the headline model for Caspian Fashion Week, which is a young fashion event, showcasing collections from designers all over Russia, Caspian States, and from all over the world. Caspian Fashion Week is proudly supported by the Government of Astrakhan Region and The Representative of the Regional Council Gennadiy Ordenov.
With recent calls for more diversity in international popular culture, on runways and in campaigns, Madeline is in a prime position to be an important face, representative, and contributor or voice for any product, brand, or marketing campaign.
Madeline possesses confidence and is an incredible modern-day, relevant role model in today's fast changing society. Additionally, her friendly, warm and thoughtful nature makes her immediately relatable. She has over 130,000 Instagram Followers and over 600,000 Facebook Fans. Her core social media audience is young women aged between 18 to 28.
