Models Determined to Turn Heads at Fashion Show in Dubai

Models Determined to Turn Heads at Fashion Show in Dubai

Two women with cerebral palsy will take to the catwalk this weekend for a fashion show in Dubai that includes models with special needs.

Bindiya Farswani, 30, will make her way down the catwalk in her wheelchair while 15-year-old Kimberly Miranda will walk the stage on crutches. And both models hope the show will help encourage the fashion world to be more inclusive in their labels as well as change perceptions about disabled people.

Bindiya told 7DAYS: “Of course, like every other girl, my heart desires to wear or at least try on some of the fashionable clothes currently trending. However, at times I do have to place a rock on my heart and overlook some of the outfits because either the size isn’t correct, it’s too revealing, length isn’t right… it will look fabulous just on the so-called ‘perfect body’ who’s walking.”

The model described the creations she will strut in at the show as “just the exact clothes I’ve always imagined myself wearing”.
