The anti-bacterial dress is a collaboration between a student designer and fiber scientists. The two-toned gold dress and metallic denim jacket were a big hit on the runway at Cornell's Design League Fashion Show. The dresses are made of cotton fabrics coated with nanoparticles which give them qualities to prevent colds and flu. Moreover, you don't need to wash them.

Implications - Instead of full radiation gear, brands are creating fashionable clothes that does more than just look good. As strange as this anti-bacterial dress may be, there might be something to it. Perhaps the future of preventing sickness involves a healthy diet and wearing proper clothes that actually do more than just keep you warm. Stats for Virus-Fighting Garments Trending: Older & Chilly
