The fashionista, Diesel and disability
You know what’s cool? Diesel, a prominent fashion brand, is featuring a person with a disability in their international fashion campaign. Know what’s even cooler? It’s not a fundraiser or to bring attention to a specific cause, it’s because this woman has such wicked style! Don’t get me wrong, fundraising and bringing attention to the needs of people living with disabilities is a noble and worthy cause. However, I’m an inclusion junky. People being seen for their talent, not their disability is my numero uno for awesome.
Diesel contracted Jillian Mercado, fashion blogger and curator of Manufactured1987, to appear in their Spring/Summer 2014 International campaign. Doesn’t she look amazing?
If you check out Jillian’s website you can read many interviews she’s given on the fashion industry, disability, and living in New York. Not to mention a few high fashion tips!
Read what Jillian has to say about the campaign. #dieselreboot.
