Guiliana an NYI high school student earlier this year particpated in a Fashion Week show. The First National Blind Fashion Show was officially part of New York Fashion Week Calendar under the supervision of the CBH Model Management. The goal now is to bring the show to France. There is a gofundme raising money for the event.
While some legally blind individuals like America’s Next Top Model contestant Amanda Swafford have had some success in the modeling world, Blind Fashion Show producers say that theirs is the first fashion show to exclusively feature blind models during New York Fashion Week.
This is not the first student to break into modeling. Diandra Forrest graduated from NYISE in 2007 and has been in the industry for years.
