On July 10th, face coverings were made compulsory in shops across Scotland. For the fashion forward, the new rule was a chance to get creative and embrace this everyday necessity, incorporating it in to their style and look. In Edinburgh some opt for statement masks that reflect their style, while others have gone for the standard surgical mask.
Freya Sheldon: ‘ I have been collecting masks in different colours to match my mood for that day.’
Ziggy Stasiak: ‘When I go to fabric shops I pick up cool scraps, masks are the perfect thing to make.’
Rohan Strathie: ‘My money goes to designer clothes not to designer masks.’
Otto Carpenter (right) Jesmond Wheat (Left): ‘I went to boots and I just got the big pack but it was £35, I think it’s quite expensive.’
Kristina Gardiner: ‘I wear a lot of black because of work, so it is easy to pair a black mask with things.’
Josh Ward: ‘I quite like wearing masks. It seems like the sensible thing to do at the moment.’
Izzi Wightman: ‘I wear my homemade masks because they are eco friendly, everything I wear is pastel, so my masks are pastel too.’
Ellie Campbell: ‘All the masks in the store are too big for my face.’
Dario Laureano Rodrigues: ‘I don’t think about it, I just happened to wear the black one today.’
Calvin Stewart: ‘I enjoy having a homemade mask, it’s a personal touch.’
Adrianna Czachorowska (right) Roxi Hoffman (Left): ‘I don’t really care that much, I’m just like oh there is my mask I have to put it on quickly.’
