More than 40 models with different abilities took the NYFW stage to show off adaptive clothing during this year's Runway of Dreams.
Two 2-year-olds were caught on video running down the block giggling because they were so happy to see each other.
A dutch photographer Dick van Duijn went to Vienna, Austria to photograph ground squirrels and landed on a gold mine when he captured one particular squirrel smelling flowers.
For our top story of the week, we got an inside look at New York Fashion Week's Runway of Dreams, speaking with Runway of Dreams Founder Mindy Scheier.
Scheier explains how Runway of Dreams got started, saying that one day her son Oliver, who has muscular dystrophy, expressed to her that he was feeling left out at school because all the other kids were wearing jeans and he wanted to wear jeans as well. Scheier says this moment led to her creating more adaptive clothing, which she saw boosted her son's confidence, and eventually Runway of Dreams was born.
Runway of Dreams began in 2014, but it wasn't until Tommy Hilfiger got onboard in February 2016 that a big change began to take place. More recently, three major brands, Tommy Hilfiger, Kohl's, and Zappos, have come together to make it an industry-wide mission to show that everyone can have adaptive clothing options in their collections.
'Clothing is not optional. It is right behind shelter and food,' Sheier says. 'People with disabilities should be able to show the world who they are as people through their clothing choices.'
Scheier wants to inspire brands to become more inclusive, so that people with different abilities can feel empowered and independent.
