Fashion is coming for healthcare workers

Some healthcare workers are using personal protective equipment to express themselves, giving fashion a new inroad into the workplace.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, designers quickly jumped into mask-making, as masks became a staple of everyday apparel. Beyond masks, there are designers interested in “healthwear,” too, The New York Times reported.

A designer known for her lingerie and loungewear, Josie Natori, is teaming up with a Care+Wear to create a line of scrubs that model her best-selling pajamas. Another scrubs company, FIGS, which is dubbed “the lululemon of medical clothing” went public. Other companies too are focusing on this area, potentially making medical clothing the last frontier in fashion.
