Protective Ensemble

Appealing to a need for safety, fashion retailers adopt protective materials

Implications - Appealing to a growing sense of paranoia among consumers, fashion retailers are turning to alternative materials to offer a greater sense of protection, from the elements and beyond. Transforming traditional clothing into bulletproof and armor-like clothing pieces, retailers are not only making everyday apparel more durable, but also providing consumers with a tangible method of day-to-day protection.
