Chloe Ball Hopkins is changing the way brands look at disabilities, now with a new collaboration between herself and ASOS who created a wheelchair-friendly waterproof all-in-one jumpsuit with everyone on social media going crazy for it!
See all the details below.
Chloe Ball-Hopkins is a Great Britain Paralympian who's changing the way brands look at fashion for people with disabilities.
After getting in touch with ASOS a few months ago, the team listened and a collaboration started taking place between Chloe Ball-Hopkins and the go-to fashion brand, designing a wheelchair-friendly waterproof-all-in-one jumpsuit in a gorgeous pastel-print, tie-dye design.
"It's not just any jumpsuit, we've adapted this to be wheelchair-friendly too. The jacket and trousers zip together and are full waterproof. The hem is also a little longer at the back to stop it from riding up when you're getting from A to B" - this is the description on ASOS and the item can be found on the ASOS design category.
Chloe Ball-Hopkins spoke to the BBC saying: "To see the final product, I can't believe that we actually worked in conjunction so much. I thought that maybe they would take it and run with it. You get the same version whether it's you or I buying it - that's the point. It's the same for me as it is for you."
Since the collaboration was announced, the social media world has taken this by storm - with hundreds of Retweets, people want to see more collaborations like this online and it's definitely a step in the right direction.
There's so much support out there with many social media users now urging other brands to get on board and develop ranges / campaigns similar to this.
What do you all think of this collaboration? Do you want to see more brands creating ranges like this?
