Bunji Garlin was accused of glorifying banditry when he covered his face last year.

Last year, Bunji Garlin’s name was embroiled in a bit of chaos after he wore a bandana (handkerchief) across his face. His outrage on social media after television morning show host, Fazeer Mohammed deemed his face covering “gangster fashion,” sparked an outpouring of public support with many, from all walks of life sharing photos of themselves, donning their bandanas across their faces, in true Garlin fashion. Bunji had brought to the fore, the social issue often faced when it comes to fashion and how certain items of clothing is worn.

Fast forward to 2018 and the bandanna trend has been upgraded, so much so that a business has been created that’ll see varying bandanna patterns accessorised to highlight the trend positively. Peter Q Bannz Richards is a producer, dancer, choreographer, costume designer, television host and the list goes on. He now adds accessory designer to that resume, as he delivers bans by Bannz- ‘blinged’ out bandanas. “The aim is to remove the stigma that bandanas are classified as a downtown/ghetto accessory. Now, we’re wearing our bandanas like crowns, making them classy with a little bit go gangsta infused,” he told EBUZZTT.

The idea for the accessorised bandanna came to Richards in October 2017 and he has since been working arduously behind the scenes, creating various patterns and telling a story through them that would in essence, make people from all walks of life feel comfortable with the popular fashion trend.

Question now is, what’s next? Imagine those Rihanna inspired face masks…? Could it be on the horizon? Oh, what a riot that may cause when conservatives get wind of such a movement.

Rihanna wore this face mask at Coachella 2018.
