Just by Qingdao’s coastline, you can often find people wearing these overhead masks for protection against the sun, and only exposing their eyes and mouth. After it got popular online, the name “facekini” was quickly trending. Now, the facekini has been accepted as a fashion trend and adopted by many fashion designers in their clothing lines. Never would you have guessed that the one who started it all was a lady of nearly 60 years old from Qingdao. If you ever have the opportunity to meet these ladies with facekini at Qingdao’s beaches, ask them for a picture. They will most definitely say yes with pride and confidence in their local Qingdao invention.
