Four-year-old Francesca Rausi, a young girl with Down Syndrome, took to the catwalk in Malta with one of Australia’s top models, Madeline Stuart (who also has Down Syndrome) recently and Francesca surely stole the show!
Francesca stole the hearts of Malta this summer as she won over the audience after walking in a local fashion show as the only model with Down Syndrome.
But this time she walked with Australian model Madeline Stuart, who rose to fame after walking the runway at New York Fashion Week. She has also walked Paris fashion week, London fashion week, Runway Dubai, Russia fashion week, Mercedes Benz fashion week in China and many more.
Francesca took home the ‘Best Cutie Little Model’ prize at the previously mentioned international fashion show. Shortly after, she was crowned ‘Best Junior Super Model’ at the Miss Junior Malta competition.
The show aimed to raise awareness for models with disabilities, hoping to prove that even the slightest of ailment doesn’t have to stop a model from taking to the catwalk.
It seems as though things won’t be slowing down for little Francesca any time soon. Where do you think we’ll be seeing her next?
