If you’re going to wear a face mask, you may as well wear it well


When a client asked Jennifer Rothwell to make her a face mask using her trademark prints, the Irish designer realised there was a market for masks that make a fashion statement.

In response, Jennifer designed a collection of silk face masks in a kaleidoscope of colours and patterns. The reusable, (machine) washable masks are printed and made in Ireland and allow Jennifer’s seamstresses to keep actively working.

The award-winning Dublin-based fashion designer is also giving back, with 10% of profits going to the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless.

Modelled by Jennifer’s daughter Isabelle (above) and other members of her family, the collection is available online at www.jenniferrothwell.com now, with prices ranging from €20 to €28.
