Karan Singh, COO, Percept Live said, “Sunburn has always upheld and endorsed the ‘Live, Love, Dance’ philosophy. The idea behind launching a contemporary range of stylish masks and accessories was to send out a strong message to our fans that we can have fun even while fighting this once in a century war against the Covid-19 pandemic. Over the past 6 months we have all learned to innovate and work around this virus, and one of the interesting consumer trends observed was the careful integration of each outfit with fashion masks. The shortage of masks in the initial stages made us also realize that it was important to create washable and reusable environment friendly masks. Sunburn merchandize has always been popular and a must have memorabilia for our fans, this was only a step forward to cater to the requests of our fan community.”
