A modelling agency has been at the centre of controversy after it turned down Asher Nash for an audition with a major children's label because he has Down syndrome.
When mum Meagan Nash was told OshKosh didn't ask for a baby with special needs she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Setting out to change people's notions of beauty, Nash posted pictures of Asher on the Kids with Down Syndrome Facebook page questioning why children's label OshKosh had not wanted her son to model their clothes.
"Let's find out how he can model for OshKosh and show the world what he's made of," the post said.
When the post went viral, OshKosh got in touch with the family and invited 15-month-old Asher to an audition.
Now, the adorable boy has been signed to model with OshKosh for their Spring 2017 range.
Speaking to 11-Alive, Meagan said Asher was a natural, added, "He went in there and he was Asher."
"He was waving, he was blowing kisses! The CEO held him and he didn't want to leave."
Well done, Asher!
