Australian model Madeline Stuart has landed two advertising campaigns with the New-York based clothing brand, everMaya, As LifeNews previously reported, Stuart has Down syndrome but has not allowed that to get in the way of her pursuing her dreams.
The co-founder of everMaya, Damian Graybelle, said the following about working with Madeline: “The experience working with her has had a positive impact on me personally as well as professionally. I just never expected that our campaign with Madeline would have had such an effect on people. I have spoken with so many parents of children with special needs that have told me how our partnership with her has given them hope and changed their perspectives on what the future holds for their children.”
Earlier this year, Graybelle elaborated on Madeline’s beauty. He said, “Madeline has external beauty—Down syndrome or not. But secondly, she captures inner beauty, which is something the everMaya brand is all about. She is so inspiring, and she epitomizes all those ideals about what real beauty is, not superficial beauty, real beauty that is more than skin-deep. The fact that she happens to be gorgeous is just a plus.”
