Seb White, 4, Is M&S New Back To School Model With Downs Syndrome
This is a big step forward for those who wish to see disability represented on the high street, and for disabled models of all ages. I send sincere thanks to Marks & Spencer, and hope Seb White will set a trend for their future and that of the British High Street as a whole.
The mother of a boy with Down’s syndrome has persuaded Marks & Spencer to rethink the models it uses to sell children’s clothes.
Caroline White, from Bath, noticed the lack of diversity in retailers’ Back to School campaigns while out shopping for her four-year-old son Seb.
Now M&S has taken on board the comments she made and Seb has become the retailer’s latest model recruit.
