Opportunities for people with Down Syndrome are few and far between.

Director of the Down Syndrome Family Network, Natalie Mohammed, said it is for this reason the organisation has partnered with Designer Richard Young to create a space for these individuals to showcase their talents in the form of a fashion show.

The show is titled “Fashion with Us” and is aimed at ending the stereotypes against people with down syndrome. It is carded for May 31st.
