Anna Wintour and Tom Ford set up Fashion Rescue Fund

Anna Wintour and Tom Ford have launched a fund for those affected by Coronavirus in the fashion community.

The Vogue editor and CFDA chairman will repurpose the 2020 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund into a fundraiser to aid fashion businesses (young designers, seamstresses, and manufacturers) in the American fashion community most impacted by the pandemic.⠀Titled 'A Common Thread' the fundraising and storytelling initiative is spearheaded by Vogue in collaboration with the CFDA.

A video series has also been launched that show testimonials from designers and employees affected by the Coronavirus emergency. 'There are always things one can do in the face of crisis. So in that spirit, I'm pleased to announce that Vogue and the CFDA have decided to repurpose the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund to provide support for those in the fashion community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,' Wintour said about the initiative.

Parameters of the Fashion Rescue Fund are still being defined, and designers and brands seeking relief can apply on the CFDA website beginning on Wednesday, April 8th. Applicants need not be former CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners, nor even CFDA members.
