A recommendation has been made for the public to wear cloth face coverings when leaving the house and interacting with others. This may just be the new "normal" as we practice safe distancing to avoid contracting the Corona Virus and to flatten the curve especially in the areas that may have a higher probability of community spread.
We're all about style while still being functional at The Fashion Arch so here a couple local fashion brands that have been supplying stylish masks for men and women, click on the photos to contact the designers for more info and ordering.
Be safe all but make it fashion!!!
