A nine-year-old girl is believed to be the first child double amputee to walk the runway at New York Fashion Week. Daisy-May Demetre modelled for luxury childrenswear label Lulu et Gigi after designer Eni Hegedus-Buiron spotted her at London Kids Fashion Week. The Birmingham-born model was born with fibular hemimelia, a birth defect which means all or part of the fibula bone in the leg is missing. She had both her legs amputated below the knee at 18 months old to give her the best chance of being able to walk and run. Daisy now wears prosthetic legs and was even seen cartwheeling at London Kids Fashion Week.
