We’ve always loved UK-based department store Debenhams for its affordable collaborations with top designers like Preen, Jonathan Saunders and Matthew Williamson—but our total obsession comes from more than just what the store carries.

Their new lookbook highlights these differences by pairing older models with younger ones, styling a plus size model in a boldly-patterned bikini and dressing a paralympian amputee in stunning dresses and heels. The message? Our unique traits aren’t something to hide.
