OMG, get this! A designer has been working on a new style hospital gown for over two years... and estimates that it will take two more years before it can come to market.

North Carolina State University is trying to end the partial disclosure of patients' assets. Textile design professor Traci Lamar actually has funding for research on a new style hospital garment.

Implications - With fashion moguls dominating the realm of shoes and chic purses, certain designers realize potential in areas that otherwise go unnoticed. A convenient hospital garment that is practical and accessible has the ability to be in demand from medical centers around the world. Companies would be wise to consider these niche markets that otherwise go unnoticed.
