Are You Covered?


World AIDS Day is here, December 1st, and fashion designer and Fashion Institute of Technology student Maggie Kervick is ready to tell the world one thing:  “I’m Covered.”

Kervick has teamed up with Lifestyles Condoms to launch a new campaigned called “I’m Covered.”  She has created a new line of vinyl handbags made to look like SKYN condom wrappers.  Crafted out of a synthetic material, the bags come in the Living in SKYN tote size, the Dirty Little SKYN cosmetic size, and the I’m A Slave for SKYN wristlet size.  Each bag includes an informational pamphlet as well as a box of condoms in order to educate women how to properly use them.

Kervick’s bags are spreading a message of female empowerment, breaking down all negative stereotypes associated with women who carry condoms.  “I’m hoping to break down the stereotype that if a guy has a condom, he is considered ‘prepared’, but if a girl has a condom she is considered a ‘tramp’,” Kervick said.  “The ‘I’m Covered Campaign’ reinforces the need for self-respect and a proactive approach in regards to protecting oneself from STIs and unwanted pregnancies.”
