It is perhaps a sad and unfortunate reality that people with disabilities are the ones who need our compassion and understanding the most yet more often than not receive prejudice from other people.
It’s hurtful enough when it comes from other people but is especially cutting when the prejudice comes from the people closest to them.
Fortunately, there is still enough love, understanding, and compassion in the world so that disabled people don’t need to feel excluded from the joy of living.
Of course, it’s a fact that by virtue of their disability, they won’t be able to do the things that normal people can do. However, there are some activities, like modeling, that is more flexible when it comes to working around those disabilities. But since people still go by looks, those with physical disabilities often find themselves shunned from even something as simple as that.
Fortunately, a talent agency named Zebedee Management has collaborated with the #RadicalBeautyProject in order to show the world that even people with Down’s syndrome can be absolutely fabulous in a photo shoot.
The Radical Beauty Project was created by choreographer Daniel Vais who “believes in the incredible beauty, uniqueness, and abilities of people with Down syndrome.”
This is what makes the following photo shoot so special.In their words, “Zebedee Management is a unique talent agency who represent models of ALL ages and ALL abilities. In spite of our models’ challenges, our talent is regular people like you and me, but they are a shining example of inspiration.
With Zebedee’s help, they are determined to bring the fashion world up-to-date and be represented as equals, and rightly so.That’s why we are absolutely delighted that our diverse models have been asked to take part in so many wonderful campaigns worldwide.
“At Zebedee Management, we share the same vision and strive for designers and luxury brands to include diverse models, from the designing process all the way to representation in the media and on the runway. We have some major brands booking our models repeatedly and are now seen as one if not the leading agency in representing talent with disabilities, differences and additional needs.”
