Pinoy nurse designs, produces Teletubbies-themed PPEs

Andrian Pe is an operating room nurse at The Medical City in Iloilo City. But on the side, he is budding fashion designer.

As coronavirus patients pour into their hospital, doctors and nurses found themselves ill-equipped without personal protective equipment (PPE). Then, a friend gave him a 100-meter roll of purple fabric.

“Siguro, she believed that I can do this kay designer man ko and I have access sa mga patahian,” Adrian told ABS-CBN.

However, it was not enough for all his other colleagues in the hospital

So he started looking for other fabric. He thought of blue and white, the usual hospital colors. But because of the lockdown in the city, he only found green and yellow.

“Then I realized I was only lacking the red to complete the Teletubbies characters,” he told GMA News Online.

Soon, he produced PPEs in bright violet, green, yellow and red colors mirroring the rainbow costumes of the classic cartoon Teletubbies characters.

His PPE outputs were sent as prototypes to different seamstresses and tailors to help boost production. Some hospitals in different places such as Cebu, Manila, Sultan Kudarat also messaged him asking for design and layouts. He also gave prototypes to Capiz, Guimaras, and Antique.

In his Instagram post, Pe drew inspiration from Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and has this to say:
“I work a lot in the hospital and the work there is exhausting. And I have always taught myself to look for the beauty in it; to look in the beauty in the faces of the patients and to be grateful. And I will bring this aspect as a Nurse Designer, to see situations with a SILVER LINING. And to assess where I could give something; where I could provide something as a spokesperson. And if I can teach people to be grateful, we can have an amazing world where #COVID19 cannot grow and prosper, and children will have smiles on their faces.”
