A Paris Fashion Week fashion show was unintentionally timely, as the models wore a full range of outfits with matching masks.
The outfits were shown earlier this week by French designer Marine Serre.
The parade took place against a backdrop of growing concern over the coronavirus epidemic, which caused markets to plummet around the world on Friday.
But the Serre collection was designed before the epidemic, and it has already used face masks in its collections.
Her previous show in September had also seen models covering their faces with veils or facial masks as part of the designer’s spring / summer collection.
The masks used by Serre were previously described by its fashion house as “anti-pollution masks”.
The 28-year-old woman was praised in the fashion press for the practicality of many of her creations.
“The energy of Serre has energized the fashion industry,” said Vogue last year. “His hybrid clothes, each a radical cocktail of flattering references from a century, functional features and a sporting sequence, are never so complicated as missing the contemporary brand.”
At his showcase this week, Serre also showed a range of outfits that went beyond facial masks to hide the faces of models.
But in addition to the creations appearing as part of the Paris Fashion Week parades, masks were also worn by certain members of the public during parades.
Several people present at the window of Dries Van Noten’s fall / winter collection this week were seen wearing masks.

“It is inevitable that the concert will be canceled without further delay,” said a statement, originally written in Korean, which was posted on the group’s mobile fan platform.
“Please understand that this decision was made after careful and careful consideration.”
South Korea has been severely affected by the coronavirus – the country now has more than 2,300 confirmed cases, making it the largest epidemic outside of China.
Other artists who have canceled Asian tour dates include British grime star Stormzy and R&B singer Khalid. and a-ha, who canceled her show in Singapore.
