Madeline Stuart owned the runway at New York Fashion Week! The 20-year-old Australian model with Down syndrome dared to carry a python on her shoulders as she modeled the new collection from her clothing line, 21 Reasons Why. The python was a nod to the inspiration for the new collection, snakeskin! According to a press release for the show, titled “Snakes Alive, Girls Gone Wild,” the new collection “uses sequins to mimic the ornate snakeskin look on pieces designed for clubwear, a perfect complement to Madeline’s daywear collection.” Click through to see Madeline modeling her new snakeskin-inspired line with her python pal!
