Filter masks as fashion accessories

I saw my first person wearing a filter mask in public in Austin today, presumably in response to SARS. It was the cashier at parking garage 1 on UT campus. It was strange and kind of surprising: she was wearing a bright blue, close-fitting mask. Are we entering kind of truth-is-stranger-than-fiction era where it’s normal for ordinary people to wear filter masks when going out in public? If so, how long before designer masks appear? And when they do, what form will they take? Will it be simple color schemes to match clothing? Or will they be more like hockey goalie masks?
