Boots and Sainsbury’s are two of the high street retailers now stocking the must-have British Fashion Council (BFC) collection of face coverings by top British designers Mulberry, Halpern, Julien Macdonald, Liam Hodges, RAEBURN and RIXO.
Launched earlier this month on the British Fashion Council’s own website, the masks are proving to be highly popular, selling out quickly this week on the John Lewis website, although more stock will be available there at the end of this week, says the BFC.
Both Boots and Sainsbury’s have stock right now, in-store and online, again selling out quickly. The face coverings will launch on ASOS at the end of this week and in Waitrose at the end of the month. They are also still available now on the British Fashion Council’s website at www.britishfashioncouncil.co.uk/About/Great-British-Designer-Face-Coverings
Costing £15 for three assorted reusable, washable, fabric face coverings with two protective pouches, the launch follows Government guidance ordering the wearing of face coverings on transport and advising their use in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible.
Manufactured at Bags of Ethics owned partner factories, the face coverings are part of a BFC wider initiative to support creative fashion businesses and individuals to survive the pandemic.
Justine Simons OBE, deputy mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries said: “Wearing of non-medical face coverings when you can’t socially distance is important to help stop the spread of COVID-19. It is great to see such leadership from our fashion industry – this partnership will help slow the spread of COVID-19 and raise money for important causes.”
