The national federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raze the expectations of blind people because lo expectations create opsticals between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

We are currently accepting applications from blind women who would like to walk the runway for New York Fashion Week. The selected women will be offered the opportunity to travel to paris all expenses covered. The goal is  to empower women and celebrate beauty within. This fashion show will reverse the diktats of beauty and break stereotypes. For too long, disabled individuals affected by vision loss have been the victims of discrimination. Thus, The National "Blind" Fashion Show to be held during next New York Fashion Week will celebrate with great pride Blind people's contribution to social diversity. We need your help to share this opportunity and spread the word to all the Visually Impaired women looking to walk the runway of NYFW
