Swine Flu Chic? You Knew It Was Coming

We get a lot of crazy pitches here at The Budget Fashionista, like the celebrity mobile spray tanner guy, but this one has to take the cake.  Today, we received a pitch for a line of respirators, called FLU Fashion Respirators and we’re glad that folks are finally realizing the only thing worse than a global health crisis, is a global fashion crisis.

According to the press release, this high fashion collection of “Surgical N95 Particulate Respirators…. uphold a filtration level and fluid resistance universally recognized in the prevention of the inhalation of airborne microorganisms”, while apparently making you look like a member of the LA Crips gang.

    This is too much. Looking like a cowboy/gang banger is never chic, and making light of a soon to be pandemic is never cool!

    This is really a press release we received and it was so absurd, that we had to post it.. Even more so, cause I am an Epidemiologist (someone who study diseases and how they impact populations). I find it interesting and humorous in a very john stewart way…

    I know it wasn’t The Budget Fashionista with the bad! Whoever thought “Hey let’s make a buck off people’s fears” should be fired. Funny story, but what’s next? Plaid hazmat suits? If you find that, def post it!
