Double amputee girl debuts on Paris fashion catwalk

  • Daisy-May Demeter was born with fibular hemimelia, where part or all of the bone in the lower leg is missing

PARIS: A British girl who lost both her legs when she was just 18 months old has made her Paris catwalk debut on the Eiffel Tower.
Nine-year-old Daisy-May Demeter from Birmingham walked for a luxury French children’s brand in the show high on the Paris landmark Friday and said the experience “makes me feel pretty and special.”
Daisy-May was born with fibular hemimelia, where part or all of the bone in the lower leg is missing.
She had to have the double amputation while still a baby and later received prosthetic legs on which she learned to walk.

The Paris show was her third appearance as a model for the label Lulu et Gigi, after New York and London fashion weeks.
Her father Alex Demeter said the disabled community were behind his daughter.
And he said he was not surprised at all the attention.
“I’m not surprised because I know what Daisy is like, she’s an exceptional young girl proving that disability doesn’t hold you back and she’s a great role model for anybody trying to pursue their dreams.
“Any goal she has in her head I think she can achieve, anything she chooses to do. That’s a great feeling as a parent,” Demeter added.
“Obviously coming back from a situation when she was born, when you see no future, where you see no hope ... (now) anything is possible, that’s an amazing thing,” he said after the show.
