“Diversity is the future… In five, ten years’ time you are going to see every form of model on the catwalk and no one is going to blink an eye.” – Rosanne Stuart

Madeline Stuart is a professional supermodel, having strutted the world’s most prestigious runways and fashion weeks. But she’s much more than just your average supermodel. Brisbane-born Madeline is the first professional supermodel with Down’s Syndrome.

Chronicling Maddy’s journey over four years from regular teenager to the couture capitals of the world, documentarian Jane Magnusson captures Maddy’s vivacious spirit as she travels the world, spreading a message of acceptance with her eternally supportive mum, Rosanne. Together, Maddy and Rosanne tackle the archaic beauty standards of the fashion industry, challenging perceptions about beauty and disability all the way.

“Combining the craft of Nordic storytelling with the drama of the fashion industry, this doc – about one of Australia’s most charming models – might just provide us the happy ending we’ve all been waiting for” - AIDC

Special guests: Rosanne Stuart, Madeline Stuart
