Sylvia Heisel, the designer that I work for, came up with a really great idea to embellish the masks that everyone is clamoring for in the wake of the swine flu epidemic. She said that in Asia, it is polite to wear a face mask when you are ill, and that this might help that same etiquette catch on here. Her great idea brings some chic beauty to one beast of a public health scare.
UPDATE!!! My photo of Nicole here in the designer mask is featured on the OK! Magazine blog! Woo woo!
