Modeling Agency Celebrates The Beauty Of Models With Down Syndrome

We are all born with different shapes, sizes, personalities, and abilities. But unfortunately, there's still a stigma against people with disabilities such as Down Syndrome. A forward-thinking modeling agency called Zebedee Management is trying to shake things up by representing models of ALL ages and ALL abilities.

They've partnered up with 'The Radical Beauty Project' which aims to provide an alternative vision of beauty today and it's a welcome change.

Zebedee Management is the U.K's all-inclusive modeling agency specializing in working with people with disabilities.

They recognized the lack of representation in this area and vowed to change it.
