American fashion designer, Cynthia Rowley, has introduced a new line.
No, not talking about her dresses,
nor her shoes,
but her sparkly, sequined, and fancy printed bandages, yes, Band-aids.
These designer strips come in a black or blue specially marketed tin.
These are a limited edition and are sold for $10.00 in Cynthia Rowley stores, on her website, and in the Cooper-Hewitt Museum Shop. One dollar from the sale of each tin will go to Design Ignites Change, an organization that engages high school and college students in design and architecture projects that address social issues in their own communities; however all proceeds generated in the museum's shop will be used to help support the Museum's mission.
These glamorous designs are by Cynthia Crowley and she definitely deserves her kudos.
Ladies will be wearing these with or without nicks.
In the midst of all this let us not forget other adhesive strips.
Moms have been purchasing various colored and fun designed bandages for many years.
What well intentioned, and self respecting mom has not forgotten to restock the medicine cabinet with adult strips? So, for a long time, before a designer put a signature on a band aid, moms have donned what they had on hand, and wore it proudly.
Moms there may be no runway but please stand and take your bow.
