Did fashion die out in COVID? According to Alison Bruhn and Delia Folk of “The Style That Binds Us,” people dressed very intentionally—even during COVID. Clothes were still serving a purpose: to soothe. People wore big fluffy robes and slippers or soft sweaters and sweatpants. They choose pieces of clothing that cocooned them in safety and comfort. The world needed comfort in a time where everything was frightening.
But what about Post-COVID? In this episode of Mothers & Daughters Unfiltered, Diane and Natalie chat with this mother-daughter duo about the future of fashion. The ladies also talk about how “The Style That Binds Us'' was created, why they feature certain brands, and how you can create the perfect core wardrobe. Don’t miss this fun fashion-filled episode!
