A MODEL WITH A DIFFERENCE
With her face coated dramatically in silver paint and wearing only a black chain dress, Rebekah Marine looked like any other model striding down the catwalk. But on closer inspection, one noticed the glove on one hand, embellished with rhinestones, that enclosed her bionic arm. Born without a right forearm, she began modeling after college and was cast in Antonio Urzi’s show at New York Fashion Week. It’s a bold – and welcome- move towards embracing diversity in all its shapes and forms in the fashion world.
