Madeline Stuart — the girl who conquered the modelling world
When Madeline Stuart was 17, her mum took her to a fashion parade where most of the models seemed to fit a tall, thin, predictable box.
Maddy was born with Down Syndrome, a condition that means she has an extra chromosome. And while she didn't look like the models she saw in magazines, fashionistas thought Maddy was beautiful.
They invited her onto the catwalks of New York, London, Paris — every corner of the globe.
Maddy always knew she could conquer the world — and now she's showing everyone else that they can too.
Narrated by actress and writer, Kate Mulvany.
