Rebekah Marine, most commonly known as the 'Bionic Model' wears one of the most advanced prosthetic hands in the world. On February 15th, Rebekah walked at the FTL Moda show for New York Fashion Week. This season, however, she brought a friend to walk side-by-side with her on the catwalk.
Six-year-old Gianna Schiavone, also a congenital amputee, joined the Bionic Model wearing a stunning gold dress designed by Josefa Da Silva.
"The fashion industry has never quite gotten the diversity thing right - until recently. For me, bringing Gianna with me on the runway is symbolic in way. She is opening the doors to the future generations to come. I don't think she realizes the impact she just made in the industry."
