I am now working with Models of Diversity - who are an absolutely fantastic organisation who campaign for equality and fair representation within the media and fashion industry. So as an ambassador for equality for disabled people within the fashion industry, I wanted to share with you guys the AMAZING product, known as the mannequal.
The mannequal was created by disabled model and artist Sophie Morgan. If you're from the UK you may have seen a few of her documentaries on the BBC - and if you haven't I urge you to search them online. The idea is that the mannequal will be placed in a shop window or display and any male or female mannequin can sit on it. This revolutionary product is the first of its kind, and helps to call an end to disability discrimination.
“All disabled people shop, so we should be represented in the stores we shop in, simple as that!” - Sophie Morgan
What do you guys think about the mannequal? Have you seen one whilst out shopping?
