Her father Alex said afterwards that she was “amazing” and “felt really proud of herself” as she modelled for brand Lulu et Gigi.

She is set to model at the top of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Fashion Week later this month.

Young Daisy was born with fibular hemimelia, a condition where part or all of the fibula bone in the leg is missing.

But she began her modelling career at eight, appearing for clothing brand River Island.

Her invitation to New York Fashion Week came after Lulu et Gigi designer Eni Hegedűs-Buiron saw her walking at London Kids Fashion Week.


She was joined on the catwalk on Sunday by her older sister Ella, 11.

Her dad, Alex Demetre, added: “Daisy and Ella both did amazing. Daisy walked it like a professional and had fun doing it.

“She felt really proud of herself for what she achieved.”
