Happy Thursday! Today, we would like to give a special shout out to some fabulous friends in the fashion industry.
First, meet Marteal, a wedding dress designer and owner of Loulette Bride. In the spring, Marteal was forced to temporarily close down her bridal boutique in Brooklyn in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19. During that time, she used leftover material from gowns to create cloth masks and surgical caps, which she then donated to nearby hospitals. She was able to make 60-90 masks in one day! Since Marteal’s boutique has reopened, she has made sure to follow CDC guidelines closely to ensure the safety of her staff and patrons. This has included limiting the number of people inside the boutique, mask wearing, hand washing, and frequently disinfecting surfaces and commonly touched areas.
Next, meet Jason, a Design Director at a larger fashion company in Manhattan. In the spring, his store was also forced to temporarily close. During that period, Jason and his team of designers came together to develop a new line of fashionable face coverings. Their goal was to help stop the spread of COVID-19, while ensuring their customers still felt beautiful and chic. Since his store has reopened, he has also made sure to follow CDC guidelines to allow shopping to continue in a safe environment.
Thank you Marteal and Jason for helping our world stay safe AND beautiful!
