David's Bridal could be filing for bankruptcy — and people aren't sure what to think

David's Bridal could be filing for bankruptcy — and people aren't sure what to think David's Bridal recently missed a $270 million loan payment. Now, it seems that there's a "very high likelihood" that the wedding retailer will file for bankruptcy — and people aren't sure what to think of the situation.

A bridal shop in the U.K. is gaining international attention for a window display featuring a mannequin dressed in a wedding gown and seated in a wheelchair. Beth Wilson, who is disabled, took to Twitter to share a photo of the display , which she noticed while passing the White Collection Bridal Boutique in

In a celebratory moment for inclusivity, a woman in the U.K. recently noticed and shared something she's never seen before in a store window: a mannequin modeling a bridal gown, posed in a decorated wheelchair.

The display was spotted by Beth Wilson, 36, who is disabled herself. Wilson saw the model in Portishead, Bristol and shared a photo of it on her Twitter so people all over the world could also see and celebrate the rare moment of disability inclusivity in fashion.

"This is the first time I’ve seen a wheelchair in a shop window like this (mobility shops not included) and it was so surprising to see and made me feel represented," Wilson says. "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."

The mannequin is in the window at The White Collection, a bridal boutique in Portishead. Wilson praised the shop for not just including a mannequin in a wheelchair in its display, but for decorating the chair with green vines. "Mobility aids are often portrayed as negative things that people want to hide when actual mobility aids like wheelchairs give us freedom," Wilson says. "It’s great that the decorated the chair rather than try and hide it away."

Why my sister fired me from her bridal party

Why my sister fired me from her bridal party Lucy was thrilled to be the matron of honour for her sister, but events leading up to the wedding weren’t exactly ‘smooth sailing.’ As told to Libby-Jane Charleston I was really excited about my sister’s wedding. Fiona had been dating Sam for six years, so it felt like this wedding was a long time coming. He was a great guy, and they’d had a few dramas over the years and split up a couple of times but, apart from that, they were in a great place. The most exciting thing was that Fiona had confided in me that she was pregnant, and she wanted to get married before her baby was born. I helped heaps with the preparations, even driving her to the Hunter Valley to check out wineries.

While this bridal boutique isn't the first to feature a mannequin using a mobility device like a wheelchair (a JC Penny in New York City had a display including a wheelchair in 2014), as Wilson points out, this sort of inclusivity is exceedingly rare. And if the reaction to her original tweet is any indication, it's something a lot of people would readily welcome and celebrate.
