There is a growing belief that the ideas of the past don’t exist in the future. I believe that we are witnessing a transformation in fashion where the vast majority of people will be wearing facial masks in the years to come.
A few brands are creating inspiring masks that spawned a widespread movement to shed light on the birth of the new facial mask.

Masks: The Trio 3-Layer Antibacterial Cotton Mask available in Mixed Blue 3-Pack and Mixed Chambray 3-Pack. In April 2020, at the initial request of VCU Health, Richmond-based shirtmaker and menswear brand Ledbury pivoted production from shirts to protective masks to support the need for PPE in the fight against COVID-19. The Trio Masks are constructed with three layers for protection. The diamond shape covers the nose, mouth, and chin for full, comfortable coverage. The outer layer of cotton is finished with an antimicrobial treatment, and the inner layer is ultra-soft cotton. Each purchase of direct-to-consumer masks is matched with a 1-for-1 donation benefiting the Community Foundation For A Greater Richmond and The Partnership for the Homeless in New York City.
