Talking to media person, Sefiya Diejomaoh, Fashion Designer said, “I have to maintain status quo and remain who I am despite the situation. Another thing is you have to cheer people, you know people going around in surgical masks are depressing, but when you come out with a stylish mask or with an accessory such as this, it does not seem as though we are fighting a war, it seems more fun”.

Another Fashion Designer, Sophia Zinga said, that at the beginning of the pandemic, she thought that it would last for maybe a few months but now she realized that wearing masks will be mandatory for another one or two years.
