Ok, it seems like the H1N1/Swine flu virus is behind us, so we can put away our surgical masks and get serious about our fashion masks for Fall 2009. For next season, designers are putting faces behind masks to give them freedom -- letting us hide from the world, be invisible, and not be responsible for our actions.
People in masks do things they may not ordinarily do and different personalities develop and lunge forward. Whether it’s netting, hats, hair, or bonafide branded masks, get ready to hide your face.
