Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention, and photos of some coronavirus-inspired fashion prints making the rounds online affirm this narrative.
The Ghana Textile Printing (GTP) unveiled the company’s latest line of designs in June.
The new prints have symbols similar to padlocks, keys, and planes that highlight some of the measures rolled out to stem the spread of the dreaded COVID-19.
Speaking to the BBC about the company’s new innovation, the marketing director of GTP, Stephen Badu, said the company decided to put a twist on the negative phenomenon.
According to Badu, the company hopes to leave a mark in the sands of time as they make history.
He revealed that GTP is a company that tells stories through its designs.
"We are a business that tells stories and we tell our stories through our design."
He emphasised that it is important that children who are born after the pandemic disappears get to know that such a "phenomenon occurred."
Some of the new GTP designs have glasses on them, similar to the signature ones worn by Ghana's president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Some of GTP’s coronavirus-inspired designs have been shared on social media.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that hairdressers in Kenya’s largest slum created a new style designed to emulate the prickly appearance of the coronavirus under a microscope.
“It is just simple and very cheap for every person to do it,” one of the stylists said.
This was the latest example of service industry workers finding ways to create awareness and earn a living as stay-at-home rules and collapsing incomes reduced customer numbers.

Recall a trending video was shared on Twitter on Thursday, July 2, showing two patients busting a move in the hospital where one of the men had his arm in a sling and the other was using a walker to get around.
Although both patients, who were seen wearing face masks, had injuries, it did not stop them from enjoying themselves.
The post was shared by social media user @BlackLwendo, who did not reveal when or where the clip was filmed. We all hope there is a final solution to the virus.
