The coronavirus pandemic has affected every aspect of life -- including fashion. To cater to new economic realities and the COVID-19 concerns of their clientele, several apparel companies have developed antivirus protection in their clothing.
"COVID-19 has reset the world," Faisal Ahmed, CEO of Artistic Denim Mills , said in a statement. "This means we have to change how we live our lives. How our clothes protect us will be a key decision in what we buy and wear."
