Is fashion going to change direction as we slowly head into a post-pandemic world? Is it going to take more res­ponsibility for the impact it has on the environment? After this extended disruption, is the fashion consumer going to change their patterns of consumption?

In response, one looks back to the recent past, when we were confined to our homes, living our professional and social lives on our laptops. In a digital world without a physical presence, clothing took a backseat. Com­fortable sweatpants and pyjamas became our daily attire.
