Top model Lindsey Wixson best known for her high demand on the runways of the biggest names in fashion. from Versace, Chanel, Fendi, Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Balmain, Diane von Fürstenberg, Tom Ford and many many more. A change in career has now made itself ever the more present after a serious injury, where the 23-year old suffered a linear tear on the tendon of her big toe, meaning she cannot wear heels anymore without creating further damage.
Unable now to simply walk down the runways as she has since 15 years of age, Lindsey has managed to find some silver lining in her situation and diagnosis. She posted on her Instagram account regarding her retirement from the modeling industry and will now focus on her creative side with Wixson Design.
The post reads:
To all my fashion fans, I am sad to inform you that my injury has put me in a position to retire from this high heel business. I have an artistic side that wants to shine through. I feel that this disability has come to me with a purpose. To show me that I must carry on. This industry has brought me so much and I am grateful for the lessons I have learned. Now more than ever I feel it is important to listen to my body and the changing times of this industry and peacefully try to move on. I ask for your support on my new endeavors with designing interiors, pottery, sculpting, carving, and investing for the future. Please follow @wixsondesign
