Denim Braxton and Diezel Braxton joined Teyana Taylor and other celebrities at the Diesel Fashion Show on Wednesday (Feb. 23). Toni Braxton’s sons were present for the show given during Milan Fashion Week Womenswear for Fall and Winter of 2022-2023.
Both Diezel and Denim were stylish at the Diesel Fashion Show. The brothers were definitely ready for pictures as they gave photographers several poses.
“So proud,” Toni Braxton said of her sons’ attendance at the fashion show.”You guys are incredible,” Evelyn Braxton said. “Denim and Diezel mom mom is so proud of you. Look at God.”
Some may remember when Diezel began his journey as a model several years ago. The teen served as an inspiration because of his determination to pursue a career in fashion while living with autism. Toni Braxton celebrated her son’s developmental progress during a recent interview.
“My youngest son, as everyone knows, my son Diezel suffers from — or I should say suffered from autism,” Braxton shared with Access Hollywood in 2016. “I am one of the lucky parents,” Toni added. “Early diagnosis changes everything,” the celebrity mom further explained. “I will tell you this. I will shout it from the rooftops.”
Toni Braxton has been a strong advocate for autism awareness. In fact, the singer sat down with Fox and Friends when Diezel was younger to share how family and friends helped her get through the initial shock and devastation of her son’s diagnosis.
“After, I felt sorry for myself for a long time and I blamed myself — I thought it was something I had done — friends came to me, that are like me, and said ‘Okay, you’re not a victim, our babies are great,'” Toni Braxton recalled. The celebrity mom committed to working with her son to help him achieve the life she knew he deserved.
Diezel celebrates his nineteenth birthday next month. His older brother, Denim, turns 21-years-old in December.
