Coronavirus kids fashion initiatives to support the crisis

Kids Fashion and Coronoavirus are a “weird couple”.
Or rather, we should say that Kids Fashion and Coronavirus WERE a “weird couple”. In fact, alongside the initiatives of the big fashion brands (those for adults), there are just as many promoted by some of our beloved kids fashion brands to support the crisis. We can join them to help people in need, or to help people helping people in need, or just to cheer us up!
We apologise if we have forgotten someone from this initial list, but it is very complicated to keep track of all them. So, come back to this page for an update and to get to know all the initiatives of the kids fashion industry against Covid-19.

Coronavirus kids fashion initiatives – Retooling and redirecting resources

From clothing to masks, from packaging to gowns for medical workers, this is how the companies of the Italian fashion system respond to the emergency and convert their production lines to personal protective equipment (PPE). The first name that acted immediately is Miroglio: the textile group based in Alba that started the production of masks (see also here). In the last few hours, also Gucci and Prada confirmed their commitment for the production and donation of thousands of masks and protective gowns for Italy.

Among the kids fashion companies that have been able to convert their production lines we want to mention Aletta
(see also here) that in the record time of just 5 days was able to start the production of gowns for medical workers to be used in hospitals. “We couldn’t drop this for a thousand reasons, the first for a humanitarian question” says Marco Pro, owner and founder of the company. In the coming weeks, employees will work at full speed to produce 5,000 gowns a day for a total of 150,000 garments.

Coronavirus kids fashion initiatives – Donations

First to carry out strong actions Armani which owns, among the others, the kids fashion brand Armani Junior. A few days after the fashion show held behind closed doors, the designer has donated one million and 250 thousand euros for the research against Coronavirus and closed all his stores, restaurants and hotels. From Moncler to Dolce & Gabbana, from Benetton to Manila Grace, from Elisabetta Franchi to Prada and Valentino, to the French group Kering, many fashion companies, of all sizes, have launched initiatives to support those fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

Among the kids fashion companies, is the initiative of FUN & FUN
(see also here), the main brand owned by the Catapano group, that has decided to support the Naples’s Cotugno hospital, by devoting 20% of its online sales up to April 30.

One of the first to launch this type of initiative is Collegien, the French brand that produces elegant socks, tights, slippers and accessories for the whole family. Collegien has made available on the highlights of their Instagram account some models of their nice slippers to paint or colour.
