Angela Rockwood Quadriplegic Model Lands Huge Nordstrom Campaign

5 Sep 2012Angela Rockwood is a beautiful girl, in her 20’s she was a model who had it all. Angela was in a car accident 11 years ago where she became a quadriplegic

At the age of 37, Angela is modelling again for Nordstrom.

Since 1991, Nordstrom has been using models with disabilities, so the retailer's pairing with Angela was a perfect way for her to get back into the modeling industry. And she feels right at "home" on set again, so let’s hope we see plenty more of Angela (and more disabled models) in fashion shoots in the future.
