Irony: France, Where Face Veil Is Banned, Fashion Show Participants Had To Wear It Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
France is proved to be the first European country to force a ban on covering a face in public areas.
France has proved to be the first European country to force a ban on covering a face in public areas. Since April 2011, it has been illegal to wear a face-covering veil or other masks in public places. In case of violation, the law imposes a fine of up to €150.
What an Irony
Ironically, last month during the Paris Fashion week, the models were seen wearing face masks amid the global spread of the corona virus.
A Fashion brand debuted a collection of designer face masks on the runway as the corona virus continues to spread around the world.
A Variety of masks, including gingham prints and knit pieces, were used to fully cover the models heads and faces.
It was amusing to see that in France, where covering the face is considered an offence, fashion show participants were now wearing masks.
In Paris! OH. THE. F**KING. IRONY. https://t.co/88zUAwQbRD
