Namibian fashion designer tackle COVID-19 with sparkles and satin

Using fashion as a voice for change, the coronavirus has inspired fashion designers to remind us how to save our lives looking stylish.

The coronavirus has allowed creatives across the world to use their talents and style as a communication instrument and Namibian fashion designers too have taken on this bull by the horn. 

Using his latest collection to pass on the message of staying safe in public spaces during the pandemic, renowned designer Ruberto Scholtz took to his social medium with his red and purple elegant satin and glittery stylish dresses and matching masks. The photos of personalities Sharon Tjimbundu and Delsie Soames that immediately went viral with comments, shares and retweets short of nothing but praise for the designer’s hands.

Although many fashion designed masks offer no protection from COVID-19, many of them are simply to spread awareness, fashion accessories as well as positivity. Musician and clothing line owner King Tee Dee also recently launched a line of branded face masks. According to WHO, masks are to help limit the spread of the disease. Masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus.

The coronavirus is increasingly having a negative impact on the fashion industry specifically worldwide with Namibia included as designers have had no clients during the lockdown.

Namibia has recorded a total of 16 cases with three of them having recovered this far, zero deaths and over 300 patients in quarantine.
