BBC show searches for model with disabilities

A new BBC show, "Britain's Missing Top Model," will seek a new model with disabilities to enter the mainstream fashion world. "Our intention is to empower both the women featured in the project and thousands of others, who shouldn't be invisible to the fashion industry just because they are disabled people," Creative Director Richard McKerrow said. "We're also looking to challenge preconceived notions of beauty." The Guardian (London)
