Laura Kirkpatrick will walk The LBD Movement runway in support of Dyslexia.

Over the last year, survivors, celebrities and supporters of the #metoo and #timesup movements have donned black dresses to the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Emmy’s, Tony Awards and other major events, to help shine the media spotlight on anti-sexual assault and women’s empowerment. 

This Saturday, September 8, during their annual New York Fashion Week runway presentation, Supermodels Unlimited Magazine will present The LBD Movement:  #fearlessfemales Changing the Face of Fashion, a celebrity fashion show, honoring these #fearlessfemales.  

The show will feature real life #fearlessfemales from all walks of life who are giving back to their communities and inspiring a new generation of women to be true to themselves. Among the models walking The LBD Movement runway will be Kasey Cohen from Bravo-TV’s Below Deck — walking for female empowerment; Laura Kirkpatrick and Jeana Turner from America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) — shining the spotlight on Dyslexia and Alopecia; and transgender model Isis King from Oxygen-TV’s Strut — walking in support of Trans Visibility. The evening’s special guest will be Izzy, a model with Down Syndrome and one of the youngest to ever walk New York Fashion Week.


“The #metoo and #timesup movements have opened a dialog that crosses borders, genders and redefines the boundaries of fashion itself,” says Kim Clark, editor of Supermodels Unlimited Magazine.  “This is a defining moment in American history, with women all over the country speaking up about their experiences, using their voices and giving power to each other in brave new ways.” 

Supermodels Unlimited Magazine will conclude The LBD Movement runway show with a check presentation to the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network, a charity that supports parents who have recently received a Down Syndrome diagnosis for their child or unborn baby. They will then host a cocktail hour from 8-9PM, giving both guests and media the opportunity to spend time with their #fearlessfemales as they speak about their lives, the communities they represent and their contributions.
