UK: Isabella Springmuhl becomes first designer with Down Syndrome at London Fashion Week

Fashion designer Isabella Springmuhl showcased her collection at London Fashion Week, Thursday, where she has become the first-ever fashion designer with Down Syndrome to take part in the event. SOT, Isabella Springmuhl, fashion designer (Spanish): "My message is not to have fear, because people like us are different, either men or women: we can reach our dreams. Even when we think 'I can't' we have to overcome the obstacles and reach the final goal, try to reach our real dream." SOT, Isabella Springmuhl, fashion designer (Spanish): "I wanted to get into University but they closed the doors in my face. Thank God I got an opportunity from Cecilia, who looked deep into my heart and recognised my value." SOT, Isabella Springmuhl, fashion designer (Spanish): "What I want from them [other people with Down Syndrome] is to not give up. They should fight in order to reach their dreams." SOT, Isabella Springmuhl, fashion designer (Spanish): "When I think about it, I must say I’m happy even though I’m the only one with Down Syndrome. I love to be here and I like people to get to know my heart, who I really am: a girl with Down Syndrome who has no fear and is able to reach her goal." SOT, Isabella Springmuhl, fashion designer (Spanish): "They cannot find clothes easily. It is difficult for us, because we have different bodies, different personalities, and sizes. We have a short torso, sometimes fat sometimes thin. That is why it is so difficult. That is why I thought about creating a clothing line called 'Down tu Chanel.' These are clothes for them, they have the perfect measurements. This is what I want to do, this is my goal." SOT, Isabella Springmuhl, fashion designer (Spanish): "So I use textiles of Guatemalan origin, because it is our national fabric. I want to inspire people, I want them to look around and see me, to look through into my heart."
