Zebedee Management collaborated with the Radical Beauty Project on their first ever group shoot for World Down Syndrome Day. All the models featured have Down Syndrome, and look every inch the supermodels they are.
When it comes to Down syndrome, most people are so prejudiced (for many a reason, and we aim at challenging these reasons in the process) that they can’t see the forest for the trees and keep these very capable individuals back, in the shadows preferably. Actually, they are pretty sure there’s no forest, they strongly believe there’s just one tree called Down syndrome, end of. We are desperate to change that and reveal to everyone the huge forest beyond the trees, the endless abilities people with Down syndrome have, when given the chance!
That is why we are beyond thrilled and excited to announce our unique collaboration with the pioneering and daring Radical Beauty Project. Its creator, choreographer Daniel Vais, believes like we do, in the incredible beauty, uniqueness and abilities of people with Down syndrome, and he worries about their doom. He is working on a high-end, avant-garde and fashion photography book featuring only models with Down syndrome from all over the world, shot by the best photographers in the industry.
At Zebedee Management, we share the same vision and strive for designers and luxury brands to include diverse models, from the designing process all the way to representation in the media and on the runway. We have some major bands booking our models repeatedly and are now seen as one if not the leading agency in representing talent with disabilities, differences and additional needs.
