Jeanjacket Designs says “We contacted Georgia after watching her t.v. show “30 inches tall and turning 18: Extraordinary People, Channel 5. Georgia was upset because no one makes clothes for Little People. We offered to collaborate with Georgia, not realizing Georgia is definitely the funniest person we have ever spoke to, her Utube channel MakeupjunkeG, with over 1million subscribers, is just side-splittingly hilarious.
We collaborated with the gorgeous Georgia Rankin to create her own Tiger and roses design tour jacket. We also surprised Georgia with her own “MakeupjunkieG” tour jacket and we made Georgia 2 matching Swarovski crystals embellished t-shirts. Georgia loved both jackets. We are thrilled that Georgia has accepted our invitation to model for us at LAFW18 20.9.18 at Syon Park, London. We will be creating two special pieces for Georgia as well as modelling her Tiger jacket.”
Georgia Rankin, 19, has been dubbed “Britain’s Tiniest Teen” and suffers from a form of rare condition called skeletal dysplasia.
She measures just 2ft 7in and her exact condition is so rare that she has never been given and exact diagnosis.
Georgia is a qualified make-up artist and has 1,400 YouTube followers who subscribe to her makeup tutorial channel called MakeupjunkieG.
When she was a baby, experts at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, near the family home in Warrington, Cheshire, diagnosed Georgia with a life-threatening bowel condition called tufting enteropathy.
The teen lives in constant agony, but she has now learned to accept her differences.
For the first 10 years of her life she was fed via a tube and suffered with constant infections – her parents were even told she may not make it.
By the time she was 13, the family were told that Georgia would never grow again and she made the decision to have the ball joints in her hips removed to ease some of her pain.
Georgia now uses a wheelchair.
She features on the Channel 5 TV show Extraordinary People: 30 Inches Tall and Turning 18.
The documentary follows Georgia from her 18th to her 19th birthday – including a trip to America to meet a medical expert in dwarfism to finally get her condition diagnosed.
I love being so unique
