The fashion label behind this resourcefulness is the Tiffany Amber Couture in Lagos, Nigeria founded by Nigeria’s heavyweight in the fashion industry, Folake Akindele Coker.
This adjustment was borne out of the need to help and also bridge the gap between increasing demand for protective wears and shortage of supply.
The fashion house which reportedly began the switch in operation in March started the production of overalls, face masks, gowns, bedding sheets, scrubs, pillow cases to be sent to health workers.
This initiative was also made possible through partnership with private organisations for funding and distribution of the PPE.
Tiffany Amber Fashion House was established in 1998 and since then, has been a part of several fashion shows in Africa and Europe. The New York Fashion Week in 2008 had her label in attendance and on display twice making her the first ever African based fashion designer to achieve such a feat.
