The fashion world is really feeling the impact of COVID-19 as evidenced by the indefinite shutdown of many stores and the indefinite postponement of the annual star-studded Met Gala.
The world has come to terms with the reality of COVID-19 and quite a number of powerhouse fashion brands are now shifting grounds from producing clothes to the design and manufacture of protective face masks, gowns, and other supplies in the bid to combat the further spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
Below is a list of fashion houses that have responded to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Nike made donations of $5.5 million worth of products which included its latest release, the New Air Zoom Pulse sneakers to frontline healthcare workers in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Milan, Memphis, London, Paris, and Barcelona.
Nike Air Zoom Pulse sneakers have aesthetic fashion designs, very comfy, and comes in a slip-on silhouette for easy removal. It’s your best bet for comfort during long hour shift jobs.
DKNY fashion brand made donations of proceeds from its latest white or black T-shirt release, Essential Tee to frontline healthcare workers, and as contributions to the New York City COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.

StockX launched a raffle dedicated to charity. Funds were raised from auctioned off fashion products like signed Kobe Bryant jerseys and pairs of Air Jordan 1s sneakers and were given as donations to the “United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund” in support of the World Health Organization. They were able to raise over $199,000 from the charity raffle which would be channeled to the provision of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers.
