Diesel's new campaign stars wheelchair-bound model suffering from muscular dystrophy

The 26-year-old features in the label’s new campaign in her electric wheelchair to represent one of 23 different sects of youth culture. Jillian Mercado, from New York, suffers from muscular dystrophy and told the Daily Mail that she hopes the fashion label’s ‘we are connected’ campaign ‘gives hope to people who are maybe saying, “My life is over” because they are disabled. You can totally do it, nothing should be stopping you.’
