By: Kiss the Mermaids and Prashant Goyal
NEW YORK - Jan. 2, 2020 - PRLog -- Kiss the Monkeys (KTM) and Prashant Goyal of Heritage India Fashions celebrates beauty in diversity by featuring models with disabilities. The Once Upon A Runway {A TOY STORY} will include models with craniofacial and down syndrome disabilities. These individuals are challenging the fashion industry's standard of beauty by not shying away from their natural beauty.

On January 16th, 2020 at 7:00 pm, New York's most famous toy store featured in the movies Big and Home Alone 2, FAO Schwarz, is shutting its doors early for a red carpet private shopping experience, including a fashion runway presentation and music performances. The venue is located FAO Schwarz at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10111, and will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Center.

Highness Prince Mario-Max De Schaumburg Lippe and Jennifer Murphy will be hosting this fashion show extravaganza. This event will be attended by members of KTM's philanthropic group of celebrities, entrepreneurs, industry elite, socialites, entertainers, and high-profile influencers. KTM's "EXPERIENTIAL EVENT" will feature a fashion runway show highlighting two models with disabilities.

Abigail Adams is an actress, model, and advocate with Down syndrome. Cynthia Cherise Murphy is a health activist and entrepreneur with Treacher Collins.

The Royalton New York Hotel will be our preferred sophisticated boutique hotelier and venue for a VIP after-party. They will be closing their restaurant for VIPs and other guests who could not attend the exclusive FAO Schwarz event due to limited capacity. We will also have a silent auction presented by Marina Dojchinov, the curator of artworks with all monies going to St. Jude from the sales of the art.

This year, the fashion and beauty industries will move toward even greater change as this event is in conjunction with diverse individuals and industries, which ties in with the reason for the comeback of FAO Schwarz. While brick and mortar retail shops like FAO are frequently closing, this trend is what brings customers into the stores. You can't get that online.

There will be various celebrity models displaying modern fashion, including varieties of vegan fashion. The Headline Designer and co-producer of the Once Upon a Runway event will be Prashant Goyal of Heritage India Fashions. Other featured designers include Pamela Quinzi (Cinderella Of New York) for Kilame, Vila Beauty Resources, and Teresa Costa Collections. Added event partners include Assuaged, Do-A-Dollar, and RAS International.
