A new generation of models has taken to the runways, representing a more progressive fashion industry. In an exclusive CNN interview, model Teddy Quinlivan publicly disclosed her identity as transgender for the first time. 23-year-old Quinlivan is a regular runway model having walked for the likes of Jeremy Scott, Carolina Herrera and Diane Von Furstenberg. She was first discovered by Louis Vuitton in 2015 and since then her career has soared. In her interview, Quinlivan said, "I've decided to reveal my trans identity because of the political climate in the world right now -- particularly in the United States."
