It’s All In The Mind: Disabled Models Hit The Runway Alongside Pros, Plus First Appearance of British Personal Trainer & Amputee

Who amongst us has lost inspiration to move on in life? Where there is a will, there is a way. If a person is as strong as his mental state, then it’s all in the mind; failure, success, it’s all in the mind. Yes, there are external forces like environmental factors and weak foundations but then you will agree with me that it’s all in the mind.

Models in wheelchair and the world’s first male amputee hit the runway at New York Fashion Week. Named FTL Moda Loving You, the show was held in collaboration with Fondazione Vertical – an Italian foundation supporting research to find cure for spinal cord injuries.

The producer Ilaria Niccolini told Ticker Report: ‘It is a very significant moment in my fashion career, this opportunity to finally open the most recognized runways in the world [Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York now, and in Milan Fashion Week in two weeks] to these beautiful talents, ready to show that disability is very often just a mental state by performing on the runway next to some of the best models on the scene’

 Here is a look at photos from the runway

The show's producer said they wanted to show that disability is very often just a mental state by inviting disabled models onto the runway next to some of the best models on the scene
