This February at NEW YORK FASHION WEEK, Fashion Designer ANTONIO URZI made history by featuring models from across the world with different disabilities!!!
COSMOPOLITAN reports during FTL MODA FALL/WINTER 2015 titled "FTL Moda Loving You," Model JACK EYERS became the first-ever male amputee on the runway at NYFW.
JACK EYERS said;
"To be the first male amputee model on a New York Fashion Week runway feels amazing. It feels like such a big deal. I just want to show that having a disability doesn't need to hold you back."
ANTONIO URZI partnered with FONDAZIONE VERTICAL, an Italian research foundation for spinal cord injuries, for the show.
Female amputees were also cast as models, some of whom were in wheelchairs. The handbags the models display in the show are part of the Landi Accessories collection.
