Nordstrom made some room in its summer catalog for fashionista Jillian Mercado in an effort to be more diverse.
The Manufactured 1987 style blogger, who has muscular dystrophy, wore an icy lavendar ‘do for and a sheer pink lip for her Nordstrom photo shoot. She shared a sneak peek of her appearance with her followers on Twitter.

Although she’s been in a wheel chair since she was 12 years old, working with a major fashion brand is nothing new for her. This is actually her second such campaign this year. Back in January, Jillian shot an ad for designer denim brand Diesel. The look for her Diesel campaign was a little bolder as she rocked a bright red lip and popped her eyes with winged eyeliner.
