Double amputee child model displays catwalk confidence in Paris
Lebanon News
Nine-year-old Daisy-May Demetre, whose legs were amputated due to a birth defect, will become the first double amputee to walk the runway in Paris Fashion Week on Friday.

Demetre, who uses carbon blades for running and on the catwalk, will model for children’s wear label Lulu et Gigi at a show inside the Eiffel Tower.

Born in Birmingham, England Daisy-May’s lower legs were amputated due to fibular hemimelia - a lack or shortening of the calf bone - when she was just 18 months old.

After seeing a TV show about fashion, her father Alex suggested modeling to her and she has since worked for several major UK clothing retailers as well as for sports brand Nike.

She started modeling for British clothing brands a year ago and has walked at the London Kids Fashion Week in February and at the New York Fashion Week earlier this month.
