Stylish face masks are becoming a new fashion trend and we are 360 per cent on board with the idea since it helps lessen the spread of the deadly COVID-19.
Unless you’ve not been on earth in the past few months then you know that Corona Virus has plagued the world causing so many countries to shut down, affecting over a million people and killing 199k worldwide.
Several experts recommend several precautionary measures to avoid getting infected with the disease which still has no cure including washing of hands under running water with soap, social distancing, use of sanitizers on your hands and surfaces as well as wearing protective cloth face masks.
In Ghana, for instance, the restriction on movements and a partial lockdown have been lifted after three weeks which has been met with mixed reactions all over the country. However, the government is advocating for the general public to wear a face mask as they move about among other measures.
As world governments and health authorities continue to advocate the use of hand masks it has also opened up a new venture for fashion brands who have stepped up production of disposable nose masks for both frontline health-workers and the general public.
Another area of production has been stylish face masks spearheaded by style influencers, social media personalities and celebrities who have been captured wearing coordinated pieces as a new style staple. Unlike their disposable counterparts, these can be reused after washing-a big win for sustainable fashion if you asked me and will definitely cost you some good cash.
Serwaa Amihere of GhoneTV, Ifuennada of Big Brother Naija fame, Business Magnate and C.E.O of Wonda World Estates and Petronia City Development, Kennedy Osei of Despite Media and his counterpart,Tracy have all joined the movement, sometimes embellishing it with Swarovski Crystals.
“To be clear, a cloth face mask is much different than a surgical mask or an N95 mask, which is the kind of highly protective respirator equipment so desperately needed among healthcare professionals right now,” says an article on Refinery 279
“Anyone who isn’t fighting on the frontlines of this health crisis that is in possession of extra N95 or surgical masks is encouraged to send them directly to those in need,” it pointed out
