Nordstrom’s Summer Catalog Breaks the Mold

As you're flipping through Nordstrom's annual summer catalog, some of the models may surprise you—in a good way. This year, the department store's round-up of fashion trends features models with disabilities—like Jillian Mercado, who uses a wheelchair because of her spastic muscular dystrophy. Others include an Armed Forces vet who lost a leg while serving in Afghanistan, a woman born missing the lower half of her right arm, and a 7-year-old with Down Syndrome. By showing these women alongside seasoned pros, Nordstrom reminds all of us that style and beauty go way beyond the standard we're used to seeing in catalogs. We hope to see more mold-breaking models like these everywhere in the near future.
