Asos has been praised for selling clothes designed with people who have disabilities in mind.
The online retailer has released a tie-dye waterproof jumpsuit for festival season, which has been adapted to be wheelchair friendly.
It was designed in collaboration with GB Paralympic hopeful Chloe Ball-Hopkins, who also modelled it for the site.
Chloe says she wants to make “fashion that is accessible to everybody”.
The collaboration came about through a single email sent to Asos by Chloe, who’s also a BBC Bristol sports reporter as well as an athlete.
She’s currently training for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics after an injury stopped her competing in archery in Rio two years ago.
“To see the final product I can’t believe that we actually worked in conjunction so much. I thought maybe they’d take it and run with it,” Chloe says.
“You get the same version whether it’s you or I buying it – that’s the point. It is exactly the same for me as it is for you.”
People have reacted excitedly to the release and to seeing Chloe model it in her wheelchair.
Gurls Talk, an online community founded by model Adwoa Aboah, praised it for challenging “the stigma around disabilities”.
Chloe had the idea for the jumpsuit after getting soaked at Splendour Festival last year left her looking, as she told her boyfriend, “like you’ve taken your gran out of the care home for a day”.
It features a zip around the waist so that despite being an all-in-one it’s easy to get in and out of, and also means people can choose to wear just the top or the bottoms.
Chloe says the ankles are cuffed, “so not only is that good for people with different heights, it also means it’s easy to put wellies on.”
