Artist Creates fashion face shields

Wearing a face mask is required around the world. Recently the New England Journal of medicine published a paper by two esteemed Harvard doctors stating that a typical face mask offers little, if any, protection from infection and that in many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

Masks don’t work but what about face shields? An artist has created lovely ornate face shields and these shields seem like they could block out just about anything, and they look cool. This might just be the answer to a high fashion and effective face covering.

Renowned artist, Boo Paterson is crafting beautiful, bespoke face shields – so you can be stylish while staying safe.

They are entirely bespoke. These creations can feature your own branding, or even a favourite theme, incorporated into the design.

The shields are hand-crafted from medical-grade, 500-micron PET plastic, and feature the obligatory gap between headband and shield so misting does not occur.

Super-comfortable, soft elastic headbands provide proper support and prevent slipping.

The headbands and applique facial elements are riveted by hand, are very sturdy, and can be cleaned in warm soapy water or with anti-viral spray.

Perfect for summer, allowing you to breathe normally and be protected, but with style.

An artist, writer, and creative director, Paterson is most commonly known for her strong conceptual and political artwork.

Her fine art has been exhibited at the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy and her hard-hitting editorial pieces shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards twice.

A journalist and editor for many years, she’s a regular cultural commentator on the BBC. The broadcaster has even produced a film about her fine art and a radio programme on her unconventional life and work.

She divides her time between New York and the UK and her book, Papercut This Book, is out worldwide. Another title is set to be released by Simon & Schuster in 2021.
