Challenging beauty standards - Dwarf Fashion Show kicks off Paris Fashion Week

Wednesday, Sep 27, 2017

Good things come in small sizes.

The International Dwarf Fashion Show kicked off Paris Fashion Week with its annual catwalk show yesterday (Sept 26).

Challenging beauty standards, the Dwarf Fashion Show is a non-profit organisation with the objective to reverse the common perceptions of beauty and give the opportunity to little people to express themselves by bringing an innovative perspective to the fashion industry, said its website.

The show first began in 2014 and has taken place in New York, Dubai and Japan in previous years.

This year, the models - who are all under 4ft 10 inches (147cm) in height - were dressed in embroidered white gowns by French designer Myriam Chalek, and accessorised with tiaras and statement earrings.
