Actress Jamie Brewer broke down barriers when she hit the runway at New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
Brewer is the first model with Down syndrome to walk the runway at the show.
The actress is best known for her role in the FX show "American Horror Story."
Brewer will be showing off an original dress designed by Carrie Hammer and is part of Hammer's "Role Models Not Runway Models" campaign.
That campaign features features real, powerful women who, Hammer says, outshine their clothes.
Brewer told Today: "It's amazing, it's really neat. Many women have many sides to their personality, this dress fits ... mine ... I am honored to be in it."
