We have witnessed the youngest model with down syndrome walk the runway of New York Fashion Week (NYFW) for the first time, which broke barriers set for ages by the industry.
TikTok star Sarah Carolyn and her sister Emily walked in Jacqueline City Apparel’s charity fashion show at the New York Fashion Week between 11th February to 16th February.
The fashion show has the press, models, buyers, fashion industry giants, and the general public present as an audience, making it an excellent platform for Emily to walk on the runway and represent people with Down Syndrome.
Sarah captioned the clip on social media, saying that her sister, Emily, has smashed “expectations that lie within the fashion industry.” She was able to showcase with her walk that people on the runway don’t just “look, walk and dress a certain way.”
The clip uploaded on TikTok has since then been viewed by more than 2.2 million people.

What did the Sister duo wear for the Runway?
It was evident that Emily wouldn’t walk in clothes other models wore. She walked down the runway with her sister Sarah wearing a baby pink T-shirt, saying, “Disabled is not a dirty word.” The short was paired with gray leggings and black sneaker. On the other hand, Sarah wore a tulle skirt and a white T-shirt with black heels.
Such representations are great for the morale of other people with the same condition, watching people who break barriers.
