Finally! Here’s Where To Get Your Locally Made, Stylish PPEs Today

These local designers have their own take on probably the must-have clothing piece of today. Know where and how to get them!

Add protective personal equipment (PPE) gear to your new closet must-have as the new normal calls for ultimate protection. As we venture out into our General Community Quarantine, some industries, establishments, and workplace may require the use of a PPE, apart from face masks. For some it’s personal—an added layer of protection for grocery runs, errands, and day-to-day-activities.



PPEs were first used by health workers at hospitals to prevent the spread of virus and germs. And ss the supply of PPE decrease due to demand of the pandemic, the fashion industry and designers stepped up to the plate to help create pieces to aid our frontliners and healthcare teams. Though not medical-grade, these sure offer as much protection as they can give. Fast forward to today, our local fashion designers have created fashion out of these PPEs. Collections entirely with stylish PPEs, re-imagination of protectivewear, and just overall designs which aim to protect—this is how local designers rose to the times. Note that these pieces, though made with utmost protection in mind and with protective materials, aren’t medically graded.
