Everyone across the globe has been trying to do their bit to contribute to the fight against coronavirus. The fashion industry has also stepped up by not just donating millions of face masks to the frontliners and the needy but also by designing some super quirky versions of them.
Even after the pandemic ends, we will be stepping out wearing face masks all the time. Thus, we can safely say that they are now going to be a part of our wardrobe. This calls for a design revolution, doesn’t it?
Here are our top five favorite trendy masks designed by leading fashion houses and figures:
#1: Masaba Gupta launches the ‘Maskaba’
Masaba Gupta recently launched a quirky initiative called Maskaba that is dedicated to the design and mass production of coronavirus protective masks. Aligning with her style, the print patterns have a hint of Indian exoticness to them.
Elaborating more on these masks, Masaba Gupta said, “These masks are washable & reusable. The Masks are being made from fabric that was meant for garments, at one of our production vendors. The team is small- with 3 workers who live at this same facility in quarantine & we are making sure the workers are being paid, and are taken care of.”
#2: Louis Vuitton contributes to the cause
One of the first looks of the elegant Louis Vitton masks came from model Jessika Hart’s Instagram, who got the mask as a birthday gift.
