My client wanted to know what to do about it, she currently doesn’t show the skin discoloration by wearing dark hose.
I think she was looking for validation or my help to make her feel better about it. She didn’t want a cosmetic procedure so I told her about Chantelle Brown-Young, the model who is the fall face of Desigual, who has the rare skin pigment disorder vitiligo.
