Young Amputee Graces Fashion Runway
Daisy-May is the first double amputee to model at the New York shows.
Daisy-May was born with fibular hemimelia, where part or all of the fibular bone in the leg is missing. It meant she required a double amputation when she was just 18 months old. Now, she’s strutting her stuff down catwalks.
Lulu et Gigi was founded by designer Eni Hegedus-Buiron who believes that beauty comes first from within. “Our garments are made to enhance each child’s uniqueness… inclusion and diversity are fostered, celebrated and encouraged,” the company says on its website.
