Motivated by the worldwide alarm over the novel coronavirus, a Croatian fashion designer has propelled his own “cheerful” collection of antiviral masks.
They offer no security against the disease which keeps on spreading the world over, yet that has not put off purchasers.
“The idea for a designer mask was spontaneous,” Zoran Aragovic, owner of the BiteMyStyle brand, says.
“Every morning while having coffee we were commenting on the coronavirus and lack of masks. “I was joking that I would make a colorful, cheerful mask, like my fashion creations, and put it on my Instagram,” says the 39-year-old from Zagreb.
Aragovic’s cotton mask inspired like his clothes by Disney characters, pop art, and comic books promptly started interest the nation over.
Many the masks, which cost around €9 (US$10), have been sold since he began production exactly two weeks back and individuals keep on ordering them, the designer says.
“These are not medical masks but cheerful fashion accessories,” Aragovic stresses.
He believes that the most ideal approach to the battle against the dread of the virus is with positivity.
Croatia has registered nine instances of the virus which has tainted over 100,000 individuals in more than 80 nations and domains and killed more than 3,000.
