This bridal shop is being praised for its very inclusive window display

People are praising a bridal shop in the UK for its window display featuring a mannequin in a wheelchair.

The window for the White Collection Bridal Boutique features a mannequin in a wedding dress, sitting in a wheelchair which has been decorated with greenery.

Twitter user Beth Wilson first shared an image of the display of the shop in Portishead, Bristol, earlier this week, praising the store for creating the inclusive presentation.

She explained that she had been passing by the store when she noticed the eye-catching window display. Beth, who is disabled, pointed out that "it's the first time I've ever seen disability portrayed in a shop window."

She wrote:

"The new wedding shop in town has a wheelchair using mannequin and it shouldn't be exciting but it's the first time I've ever seen disability portrayed in a shop window."

Social media users flooded the comments with praise for the bridal boutique's window display.

Speaking to CosmopolitanBeth added:

"It was so surprising to see and made me feel represented.

"So often disabled people feel invisible because we don’t see ourselves in the media much, and especially not modeling beautiful clothes.

"The reaction on Twitter has shown that it means a lot to other people, too."

She also praised the boutique for decorating the wheelchair rather than hiding it.

She continued:

"Mobility aids are often portrayed as negative things that people want to hide when actual mobility aids like wheelchairs give us freedom.

"It’s great that the decorated the chair rather than try and hide it away."

The White Collection Bridal Boutique later said on Twitter that stye were "delighted" about the feedback the window display had gotten.
