Blog about my life as a disabled model, fashion, disability and being the founder of


Hi guys,

Just wanted to send u all a big kiss and say Thank You for the overwhelming support on the Bijenkorf campaign!

The tweet I sended out to Models of Diversity went viral and got mentioned all over the world.

I feel blessed for the oppurtunity and trust Bijenkorf gave me, its a shame it is still world news when a luxury departmentstore as bijenkorf uses a disabled model. But thankfully we are making huge steps lately towards a more inclusive fashion industry.

I can’t wait to see where we are in a few years from now, but at the moment I feel like I’m on the top of the world!

Lots of love xoxo Debs

Debbie van der Putten gives us an insight into her life as a fashion model with a difference.

Have you seen any change in the way the fashion industry represents and caters for people with disabilities?

Not much, It has been 5 years since BBC three broadcasted “Britain’s Missing Top Model” and we’ve only seen the winner of that show in the high fashion magazines once, as part of her prize when she won. We haven’t seen much campaigns or catwalks including disability since, off course around the Paralympics disability was hot, but as quick as the games disappeared disability in advertising disappeared! Thank god there are amazing fashion diversity campaigns like “All walks beyond the catwalk” and my own campaign IMperfect here to promote diversity in fashion.

Also I’ve been talking to loads off fashion students…
