Winnie Harlow, also known as Chantelle Brown-Young, has been one of the most talked about models during February's New York Fashion Week. The young model's skin condition, known as vitiligo, is one of the first things people notice about her. However her confident strut and amazing outlook on beauty as well as her own career are what everyone is remembering about this emerging talent.

Vitiligo is a skin condition in which there is a loss of skin pigmentation, and it usually occurs in blotches throughout the body. Harlow admits that the skin condition makes her unique, but she doesn't want it to define her or her accomplishments.

The young model has been killing it during New York Fashion Week. Winnie strutted her stuff during Desigual's latest Fall 2015 RTW show. Famous pals like Drake and Tyson Beckford even came to support her at the show earlier in the week.

Winnie first broke onto the scene as a contestant on the 21st cycle of America's Next Top Model. Since then she has landed major campaigns with global companies like Diesel and Desigual.
