Luxury uniform designer Fashionizer diverts resources to make washable face masks
Fashionizer Wellness Face Masks
Prestigious uniform designers, Fashionizer Couture Uniforms, is switching its production to making high quality, washable fabric face masks. The Fashionizer team have been keen to use their resources and expertise to stay positive during this crisis in order to make a small difference.
Fashionizer typically produces bespoke uniforms for luxury hotels and spas, such as The Ned London, The Belmond Cadogan Hotel and Zuri Zanzibar Resort. In the past week, the team have been busy developing prototypes and sourcing components for a washable fabric mask, due to the high demand of medical face masks being sold out among pharmacies and online shops globally.The masks are being made in London by the Fashionizer workroom team, who are working at home, plus a network of experienced freelance machinists, who have separate clean workrooms, and who otherwise would have no income during this period. All printed designs are made in 100% cotton fabric, and plain colours are made from CPF, (Cotton Performance Fabric), an exclusive fabric which is normally used to keep therapists cool and fresh in warm spa environments. CPF is a unique blend of organic cotton, polyester and Lycra®, making it breathable, hypo-allergenic, and above all comfortable. While fabric face masks do not offer the benefits of surgical masks, they are sustainable, attractive and more comfortable to wear than itchy paper masks, which are increasingly hard to source in any case. Fashionizer founder and owner, Debbie Leon, added, “We have made custom luxury uniforms for over 26 years. In the light of this unprecedented threat to lives and livelihoods, we have looked at a way to focus on the positive, preserve jobs, keep busy and assist the situation using our expertise and resources.”Fashionizer is emphasizing that its masks are NOT medical devices. Their main purpose of these face masks is to prevent the touching of noses and mouths with hands, which is a critical method of virus transmission. Full instructions on how to take care of your masks are available on our website.The face masks will be available to order online from the Fashionizer Spa website, with prices starting at £12.25 per mask.
