A 22-year-old model who lost her leg in a tragic accident at the Alton Towers Smiler attraction ventured out on the runway during London fashion week. During the fashion show, she showed not only designer clothes, but also a prosthesis
Vicki Balch lost her leg in 2015 when there was an accident on the Alton Towers Smiler. Then four other people were seriously injured along with her.
It should be said that London fashion week has repeatedly come under fire because of the fact that models with insufficient weight and lack of diversity appeared on the catwalks during it. However, several designers still decided to use models with disabilities for their catwalks. An even bolder step was taken by the Swedish textile school, which invited models in wheelchairs for its show.
As for Vicki Balch, she excitedly wrote on Twitter how much she can not believe that she will take part in the TEATUMJONES at LondonFashionWeek.
The model without a leg has received significant online support, thanks to confident messages on the Network. Vicki successfully debuted on the runway. Social media users praised her for her bold move. And the designers noted that the model looked amazing, she was praised for her best work during the show.
Vicki had met death once more. Once, her car’s brakes failed while she was driving through Vietnam. If she hadn’t been stopped by the fence, she didn’t know what would have happened. According to her, this incident once again forced her to reconsider everything in life.
