ASOS has already firmly cemented itself as one of the most progressive brands on the high street, currently offering lines for plus-sized women as well as promoting positive body image. But their work is far from done, as they’ve now released a tie-dye rain suit designed with wheelchair users in mind.
The clothing brand partnered with reporter and Paralympian Chloe Ball-Hopkins, who created the jumpsuit with unique additions such as cuffed ankles, a top waterproof pocket for a phone/medical equipment and a zip around the waist to make it easier to get in and out of.
The ASOS' website reads"Accessible clothing is an area that we’re looking to make improvements in, both in terms of designing clothes differently and helping people with specific needs find what they’re looking for more easily,"
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
