Within days, a teen with Down syndrome has accrued more than 10,000 likes on Facebook and now she’s getting the star treatment from her favorite clothing chain.
An aspiring model, Karrie Brown started a Facebook page earlier this month in the hopes of gaining the attention of the clothing retailer Wet Seal.
“Karrie has Down Syndrome, but she doesn’t let that stop her from following her dreams, which is to be a model. We recently found out that Wet Seal has started carrying plus size clothing, which happens to be a great fit and fashion for girls with Down Syndrome,” reads a note on Brown’s page. “Wet Seal if you are listening, ‘Karrie fits in while standing out!’ and that’s directly from your mission statement.”
