We were also thinking of ways that we as team Clothia and our fashion community could contribute, and we came up with the idea of FASHION MASKS:
-- Designers on the Clothia platform are making fashion masks that best express their design personality
-- Fashion masks are not meant to replace medical masks, but to encourage staying healthy, safe, and responsible
-- Clothia would DONATE ALL PROFITS for every fashion mask purchased to COVID-19 related charities: our goal is not to make money from this, but to normalize wearing masks and help doctors and everyone else to survive these difficult times, and maybe bring a little bit of beauty into the everyday life
-- Masks can be made from remnants of fabric from other designs, promoting the concept of sustainability
-- For designers whose order volumes are down, perhaps making masks could help their business stay afloat for the next few months
Much love and best wishes during these difficult times. Please stay safe and take care of your loved ones. Also, please SHARE this initiative with your friends - we would love to do our part to help both the medical community and our designer partners to best survive the crisis.
In health, Elena and team Clothia
