Princess Madeleine celebrates inclusion in fashion with Childhood Foundation
Today, Princess Madeleine had an unannounced engagement in New York City with the World Childhood Foundation. She attended the presentation of the documentary ‘Catwalk’ alongside Hank Vestberg, CEO of Verizon, and Joanna Rubinstein, President of Childhood USA.
The documentary tell the story of Emma Örtlund, 31, a disable woman who is determined to one day walk the catwalk in New York. The World Childhood Foundation started a collaboration with the film production company Storyfire AB, who aim to highlight the problem with the preconceived notions people with disabilities can endure daily throughout the world. The Glada Hudik-Teatern is a Swedish organization that has been working for decades on trying to change these preconceived notions. This is why Glada Hudik-Teatern and Storyfire AB worked together on this documentary.
On Saturday, Glada Hudik-Teatern is hosting a special fashion show in New York where five models will display the work of Swedish couture designer Frida Jonsvens, jewelry by Caroline Svedbom along with special arrangements of the music of Avicii.
For this event, Madeleine wore a new tweed jacket by Rebecca Taylor, a new white embroidered blouse by See by Chloé and Veronica Beard flared jeans. She paired the outfit with new J. Crew earrings, her Chloé Lauren pumps with her Balenciaga tote bag and a Valentino bag handle.
