Thank you for making this an amazing Event this October!

GiGi's Playhouse NYC 2nd Annual Fashion Show presented by Bloomingdales provided the opportunity for more than 30 individuals with Down syndrome – of all ages – to walk the runway head to toe in apparel by fashion’s top designers! All models received an unforgettable experience, including personalized styling appointments, coaching by the glam team, swag bags and much more! Most importantly, this is another demonstration of how GiGi’s Playhouse NYC is continuing to change the way people perceive Down syndrome through our community’s achievements and growing self-confidence!

Thank you for making this night a success!
