The beauty and fashion industries have often been accused of being racist, ageist, size-ist and elitist.

Which is all great, even if it’s being done in baby steps or for publicity purposes. But there’s one group that hasn’t received a lot of love in the ad pages that’s about to get its day: paralympians.
