NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FTL MODA places itself again in the list of the 'top things to see and follow at NYFW' as compiled by Time Out New York among others, and propels itself to catalyze the attention of the industry with the launch if its #iAmNYFW official program in partnership with Global Disability Inclusion.
After the massive media coverage of the 'black cloud' of t-shirts on stage at the finale show of FTL MODA last September, role models Madeline Stuart- the first model with Down Syndrome- Shaholly Ayers, and Rebekah Marine continued their professional activity thanks to a calendar that became more and more engaging for them, and they are now getting ready for the presentation of the new capsule #iAmNYFW , which FTL Moda is launching and will be distributing on the market with their signature.
The preview scheduled for Saturday, February 13th at the FTL MODA Showroom in Manhattan, will be co-produced with Fashion Week Online and dedicated to the industry.
BUT THERE IS MORE
Among other surprises, FTL MODA prepares to welcome media and editors with two special debuts: little Gianna Schiavone, a 6-year-old amputee model, and Fausto Di Pino, the handsome Italian top model represented in Italy by Elite Milan, returning to the fashion scenes after a forced leave due to his battle with cancer. His marvelous recovery was recently admired at Milan Fashion Week, where he walked for John Richmond. FTL Moda prepares Fausto's debut in the US fashion scene with great thrill and a touch of emotion.
"It is for me an honor to welcome Fausto to FTL MODA: his message of courage and commitment, sacrifice and tenacity marks another powerful step in the direction of empowering the industry to set higher standards in terms of acceptance and appreciation of diversity. We love that the connection with all our models, marvelous testimonials of talent, strength, and outstanding beauty, allows us to witness the crumbling of longstanding prejudices" – declares producer Ilaria Niccolini.
Fausto, Shaholly, Madeline, Rebekah, and Gianna will walk the runway for Mr. De Curtis, Lulu et Gigi, FUMO Bespoke, and Josefa Da Silva.
