Face masks and ‘masking it’ has become the new normal for everyone due to the dangers posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

These past few months have not been easy for anyone as the world battles with the pandemic and restrictions.

Gradually, most of us are adapting to the new trends of wearing face masks, washing of hands and social distancing which is highly recommended by experts.

Die-hard critics of the face masks including the likes of Donald Trump have made a U-turn on their refusal to wear these masks and are finally masking it.

Thanks to some of Africa’s best designers and creative brains, several options of face masks ranging from bejewelled looks to wax print, handmade and the luxury bespoke options all made in accordance with world health organization standards are available both online and in-store.

The aim of wearing face masks is to protect yourself and those around you from catching the deadly virus and these designers offer you the chance to protect yourself stylishly too.
