THE BRONX -

A fashion show was held for children with autism Sunday at the Mall at Bay Plaza.

The children strutted their stuff and posed for photos on a red carpet.

Parents and spectators cheered the kids as they walked in five different categories, including formal wear, future career and autism pride.

Parents and organizers say it’s a great way for kids to feel accepted and beautiful.

This is the fourth annual fashion show organized by Champs for Autism, and the proceeds go toward expanding the organization’s programming.
