If you’ve been trying to buy attractive, reusable masks online, chances are you’ll have found that most of them are sold out. So hats off to popular entertainer Todd McKenney who has established a new website called TODD MASKS so that Australian costume designers who are currently out of work due to the shutdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, can sell masks they have made directly to the public. Designers participating include Jennifer Irwin who has worked for Bangarra Dance Theatre, The Australian Ballet, Opera Australia and Sydney Theatre Company, and Erin Roche whose credits include the television series How to Stay Married, The Wrong Girl, Sistersand The Beautiful Lie.

A couple of weeks ago, Todd McKenney set out on a new project to assist others in the entertainment industry by launching his own face mask marketplace.
Since then, he has sold almost 800 Australian-made masks, and subsequently raised $20,000 for these talented designers and professional theatrical wardrobe teams.
Australian Costume Designers such as the prolific industry veteran Jennifer Irwin (Bangarra Dance Theatre, The Australian Ballet, Sydney Theatre Company, Opera Australia) and Erin Roche (High Ground, The Pacific, House Husbands) are part of the movement and are creating ranges for sale on the platform, which are then made by professional theatrical wardrobe stitchers.
