Designer unveils new stylish hospital robe
Sep '10
Fashion designer Dian Von Furstenberg has designed a more attractive hospital robe for the Cleveland Clinic.

It is a wrapper with bold graphic prints reflecting the attributes related with designs of Von Furstenberg. The fabric demonstrates the clinic's logo. The robe has side straps which help in getting rid of the awkward open-back.

The fabric was selected particularly to deal with the difficulty of the patients who feel hot in the hospital. The designers looked for a cool light material which was strong enough to endure the day-to-day cleansing and other fittings attached to it.

The endeavor had a more or less positive response. However, some men complained against the feminine look of the robe. The designer has taken this point into consideration. So they are now thinking about another design.
