11 min

Fashion has changed since the COVID-19 outbreak began because what we’re wearing has changed a lot. One company that knows exactly how much is Stitch Fix. It learns your style through a mix of online quizzes and algorithms, and hires stylists who choose clothes specifically for you. You get a box of personalized items — one at a time or as a subscription — and you keep what you want and send back the rest.

But what happens to a clothing company, even a super techie one, in a pandemic? Molly Wood speaks with Katrina Lake, the founder and CEO of Stitch Fix.
