African stylists turn mandatory masks into fashion accessories

Many African countries have made it compulsory to wear masks in public to prevent the spread of the sometimes fatal Covid-19 respiratory disease.

Fashion lovers in the continent's biggest cities are combining style and safety by donning colourful masks, sometimes coordinating the fabric with their outfits.

The push to make masks stylish has taken off in other parts of the world. In Africa, the trend is proving a boon to local tailors and designers who are making the masks.
