In 2020, McKenzie launched the #GetMasked campaign to encourage his community to stay safe. When the pandemic hit, McKenzie was inspired by a need to do something to help his family—many of whom are essential workers— and began selling masks on his website. Selecting the right materials are a critical component of his designs - “I love textiles because they are the main ingredient in my mask designs. Like a good recipe, fabrics have unique flavors and can reveal a deep-rooted cultural story.” For every mask sold, McKenzie donates one to an essential worker and those in need throughout his Fort Greene community.
