Implications - Masks are quickly becoming a widely accepted staple in the accessories and fashion industries. The basis of the haute couture world lies on fashion as fantasy and self expression, with masks as the perfect representation of such. Designers who incorporate masks or other costume-like pieces into a collection will be seen as completely avant-garde, totally original and playfully creative.
