Jacqueline City Apparel is proud to support Emily (@sar_carolyn) on her New York Fashion Week debut via the Heroes collection & fundraiser
I am asking my friends and family to help me celebrate my special day supporting GiGi's Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center.
Emily of "Sar_carolyn" TikTok fame was seen in NYFW wearing Jacqueline City Apparel "Disabled Is Not A Dirty Word" along with an outfit she chose for herself, but instead of receiving praise for being the youngest person with down syndrome to walk in the prestigious event, Emily was met with hate comments and criticism. In order to spread the love, we at Jacqueline City Apparel, along with Emily and her family, are raising money for her favorite place in the world and all of her friends at Gigi's Playhouse! The items with the phrase "Disabled Is Not A Dirty Word" on JacquelineCity.com will also benefit this fundraiser.
Sarah, Emily's sister, on why modeling in NYFW was important to them: "Emily and I are sisters and we modeled to bring more representation to the fashion industry. Emily being the youngest teen with Down syndrome to model and for myself being apart of the LGBTQ+ community and the sobriety community. Representation matters!"
ABOUT GIGI'S: GiGi’s Playhouse is on a mission to change the way the world views Down syndrome and your donation will help ensure MORE families receive FREE purposeful programs offered from prenatal diagnosis through adulthood! Your support will ensure MORE children and adults with Down syndrome improve their speech and literacy, combat low muscle tone, and benefit from career development and real-world internship opportunities.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Love, Jacqueline City
