[Past Event] How 2020 Is Changing the Idea of Workwear
Despite the fact that clothing sales fell at the outset of COVID in the U.S., consumers were buying up sweatpants and loungewear at an unprecedented rate. In a world where we don’t have to wear suits, ties, dresses and heels to be considered competent at our jobs anymore, what do we wear? And more importantly, what does this mean for the future of workwear? Join Worth for an intimate conversation about how formal business attire is changing and how this will affect how we dress when we emerge out of this time.
Featuring: Jonathan Baker, Managing Director, Turnbull and Asser, Michelle Cordeiro Grant, Founder & CEO, LIVELY, David Hamilton, Partner, Hamilton Shirts, and Kathleen Entwistle, Private Wealth Advisor, Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management
