Tailor Nina Aprons was founded in 2020 by Chef Janine Fourie right here in sunny Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. The start of an exciting new venture after 23 years in the hospitality industry. She herself worked at an international hotel group and faced the reality of being laid off.

“Lock down gave me the opportunity to revive my skills and share skills with other chefs. When you work in the kitchen, you learn very quickly that this is not a one-man band. There is always a team to support. It is very important to be supportive and to be close to people. This has such a significant impact on your life and others. “- Janine Fourie

The 2020 and 2021 have had a devastating effect on hospitality industry. We have been able to help other chefs get back on their feet by providing part-time jobs and thru networking create new job opportunities.
