Top 17 Brands & Designers Making Face Masks for COVID-19



Branded Face Masks. As we continue to navigate this ongoing pandemic, it does not appear that wearing masks is going to stop anytime soon. As challenging as this may be, trying to remain positive about it is key. Finding ways to make wearing masks a little more fun or a little more stylish is one way we can keep ourselves motivated to continue this protective measure.



While you can certainly learn how to make your own mask, many top brands and designers are now creating them. From brands like Adidas to designers like Erdem, there are now a vast amount of styles to choose from. (Because it is best to leave N95s and surgical masks for healthcare workers and essential workers, these masks are made of cloth.) Face masks take up a good portion of the face, so wearing a cute mask is one way to make a good impression as well as accessorize a nice outfit (you know, on those oh-so-momentous grocery runs). Without trivializing the current situation and it’s severity, we feel there is room for positive expression… and even the option of supporting a good cause.

Where To Buy Branded Face Masks?

We’ve already talked about How Top Fashion Brands Are Helping To Combat Coronavirus, so today let’s focus on brands that are making some amazing face masks. Here in this article, we have rounded up the top 17 designers facemasks as well as information on where to shop online for them. Some of these brands are donating the proceeds of mask purchases or offer a deal where your purchase provides donated masks to others so we include this as well if you are interested in supporting brands that are going above and beyond to offer aid during this time. Keep reading to check them out.

Before we show you our top picks for face masks created by loved brands and designers, here are our tips on choosing a great face mask.



  • While these aren’t medical-grade masks (we want to leave those for healthcare and essential workers!) they are better than nothing. Try and pick a mask that offers a pocket for a filter as this will provide just that extra bit of protection.
  • If loops around the ears are making your ears sore, try a cloth-based tie or a ribbon-style that ties at the back of your head.
  • Look for durable fabrics that can stand re-washing. Pay attention to care instructions as some masks need to be hand-washed.
  • Make sure your mask fits around your face adequately and covers both your nose and mouth.
  • Consider a neutral-colored mask if you want to ensure it matches a variety of outfits.
  • As we are going into summer, try and pick a mask that features breathable fabric to keep you dry and comfortable.

Without further ado, here is our selection of face masks created by top brands and designers.
