Aisha Eliza Jabu, a student of CT University’s School of Design and Innovation, has made designer face masks to spread awareness on the importance of wearing them amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The student said she designed the masks having African print fabrics so that they match with her outfits. “I wanted to spread the message that we need to stay indoors. I am far from my home, but I am doing my bit to help the nation in the fight against the coronavirus,” she said. Course coordinator Kiranpreet Kaur said, “This is a perfect example of the ‘three R’s -- Reduce, reuse and recycle’ as the outfits have been designed from existing garments and with whatever material that was available with her in the hostel.”

The competition that aimed to channelise the students’ talent and energy amid the lockdown was supervised by girls section in-charge Suksham Ahluwalia. “Though they (students) have been confined to their homes since March, they have carried out various social outreach programmes such as distribution of food and medicines among the needy,” Ahluwalia said.
