Winnie Harlow(real name Chantelle Brown-Young) is a Canadian model with Vitiligo.
She has been making waves of recent not only for her looks but her confidence and personality. She walked the runway for Spanish fashion label Desigual at New York Fashion Week, and is the face of the label’s “Say Something Nice campaign”.
Vitiligo,is the same skin condition Michael Jackson had. Winnie was diagnosed with it when she was 4 years old.
Vitiligo is a long-term condition which causes patches of skin to lose their normal pigment, or melanin, and they turn white.
While she was once bullied and cruelly called
‘zebra’ and ‘cow’, the fashion industry is now
celebrating her distinct look and her positive
attitude. Her message to the world is self love.
She is also starring in Diesel’s spring/summer
2015 ads, which aims to promote ‘tolerance,
equality and unconditional love’.
She rocks and most definitely inspires me .
