The I'm able 2 model agency in Ireland was launched on World Down Syndrome Day in conjunction with 1st Option Model Management, based in central Dublin and it is believed to be the first of its kind in the world..
They have around 20 models signed with them already, ages 5-33 and they are available for photo shoots, advertising, catalogues and catwalk shows as part of the I'm Able 2 Model venture, and will be paid similar fees to other models.
The idea behind the agency is to increase representation of people with disabilities in the media, organizers say, adding that they will work to secure jobs for the models in advertising, catalogs and on the catwalk at competitive wages, reports the (UK) Press Association. To read more click here.
