“I still remember getting that call & feeling my heart sink when I heard my Mum had Covid. I felt so useless as I was in a different country & I could not be with her because of the lockdown restrictions. She lost her battle so young, an energetic 75-year-old woman who always ate healthily, was always active, with a balanced diet. We had so many plans to do together, she was so proud of all of my success & I had so much more to show her!! I never got to hold her hand or be with her when she was passing, give her a hug or tell her how much I loved her. After such a loss in my life, I wanted to design something that would help others & protect them from harmful diseases. After a lot of research, I found a protective fabric, engineered in Germany to the highest of standards & using my own fashion skills, I introduced Designer 5G clothing to the market. It fills me with such joy serving royalty, dressing celebrities & protecting everyone’s health at the same time”
