HT Exclusive: World's First Wheelchair-Bound Professional Model, Alexandra Kutas

NEW DELHI, INDIA - AUGUST 8: (EDITORS NOTE: This is an exclusive image of Hindustan Times) Alexandra Kutas, first fashion model with a disability in Ukraine poses during an exclusive interview with HT City-Hindustan TImes, on August 8, 2017 in New Delhi, India. Alexandra Kutas has been on a wheelchair since birth, and she just signed up with Strawberrifox, a modelling agency in Delhi. During an interview she said, "When I started in Ukraine, no one thought that the girl in the wheelchair could be a model. But now, I am doing this not only at home, but all over the world. Unfortunately still, the market is not diverse. But I know for a fact that no matter what happens to my career, there's going to be a day when it's going to be totally normal for a disabled person to be a model. Fashion is not just about fancy clothes; it reflects the society we live in. So we will evolve." (Photo by Raajessh Kashyap/Hindustan Times )
