Cincinnati Enquirer: Express yourself with fun, fashionable face masks
University of Cincinnati alumni design face masks with flair
As face masks become more prevalent in everyday life, they're also becoming more fashionable. The Cincinnati Enquirer spoke to two University of Cincinnati grads who are putting a stylish spin on the functional face covering.
Local designer Tessa Clark, a 2016 graduate of UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning who competed on the TV series "Project Runway" and manages Cincinnati boutique Idlewild Woman, crafted a mask made from organic cotton and hemp jersey with cotton ribbons as ties that mashes with her elevated minimal fashion brand, Grind and Glaze.
Newly minted DAAP grad Anna Hayes has made more than 100 face masks for family and friends using fabric she already had on hand.
"...It's funny," Hayes told the Enquirer. "My mother calls me a fabric hoarder and is always asking when I’m going to use that stuff in the basement. The answer is 'now.'"
