Twitter users are hailing fashion retailer ASOS for creating clothing that thinks about the needs of people with disabilities.
ASOS worked with Chloe Ball-Hopkins a BBC reporter, para-athlete and a wheelchair user has been working with the brand to the line of outfits.
People loved it and took to Twitter to praise ASOS.
Great to see this sort of representation on the @ASOS website. Shopping is something most of us take for granted in terms of representation. Seeing disabled people in the media through campaigns, as actors, singers is so important as it challenges the stigma around disabilities. pic.twitter.com/asQAprWFxS

So over the last several months I have been working with @ASOS to create a fashionable, yet practical waterproof all in one! Not just for people like me in a chair but for anyone. It’s about making fashion accessible! So what should be next?! https://t.co/1gzzkRlED9 pic.twitter.com/7yS57QEmpD
