PETALING JAYA: Most people often picture slim and slender models as the faces behind fashion brands, but a local boutique is breaking through this often-unrealistic type of beauty by featuring individuals with Down syndrome in their latest Raya collection.

With the slogan 'You are your own kind of beautiful', Maqilla Boutique in collaboration with the Down Syndrome Association of Malaysia aims to create awareness on Down syndrome and to share the message that everyone is beautiful in their own way.
