Today reported:”Madeline has external beauty—Down syndrome or not,” Damian Graybelle, co-founder of the Rochester, New York-based brand told TODAY.com. “But secondly, she captures inner beauty, which is something the everMaya brand is all about.”

The Sun reported: “Manifesta is a brand that welcomes all shapes and sizes. They said: ‘Just as Madeline is committed to expanding people’s ideas of what a model can be, Manifesta is determined to show that the clothing and fashion industry doesn’t have to be exclusionary.'”

Maddy’s mother told the Huffington Post why she chose to work with these two brands. She said: “Both companies approached us to do a photo shoot for them, and after looking at their products we believed the products would be a good fit, as Maddy loves fitness and the brand was cute and inclusive. EverMaya has not only beautiful products that are very well made, but also have a very charitable belief, so they were a perfect match. We are very happy to be working with EverMaya again shortly in New York City in the beginning of August.”
