ATLANTA – At long last, the modeling campaign for children’s clothing retailer OshKosh B’Gosh featuring a local child with Down syndrome has begun.

Asher Nash, of Buford, Georgia, is being featured in the ad campaign that began on December 2 and will run until the end of the month. Asher’s mother Meagan submitted photos of Asher to a modeling agency but never received a call back.

Meagan eventually met with company executives at OshKosh B’Gosh, who then announced they would use Asher during their holiday ad campaign.

Take a look at the photos!
