ING Active Wear a New York company and a non-profit organization held a fashion show at Maison Fahrenheit, Victoria Island, Lagos on 25 April, 2015 to launch a fabric that prevents mosquito bites hence reducing the rate of malaria.

The fabric was made in form of a hoodie, pants and can be worn to sleep or to go out carrying out our daily activities. However, it can be made in different styles that pleases an individual.

It has been tested and scientifically proven to prevent mosquitoes from bitting an individual when it is worn, and has also helped to reduce malaria by 95 percent.

This project features: Robin R. Crespo - Creative Director and New York designer, Danny. Foncesca -. New York City Make-up designer and Creative Director of the Body of Art,  Reze Bonna -.West Africa's Number #1 Fashion Photographer, Mai Atafo -. Nigeria's Top Fashion designer, Eneoma "Zubby" Azubuike -.Nigeria's Top Hair stylist.

Did you know that a 1000 people(mostly children) die of malaria everyday in Africa?, which means that in every 45 seconds, a woman looses her child? Stay healthy.
