CFDA and 'Vogue' Set Up COVID-19 Relief Fund

To benefit struggling members of the American fashion community.

Pivoting the focus of the CFDA and Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF), originally launched in the wake of 9/11 to benefit emerging creatives impacted by the tragedy, Vogue‘s Anna Wintour and CFDA Chairman Tom Ford have decided to use this year’s CVFF to aid fashion businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

To help raise awareness of the ways in which the outbreak of COVID-19 has affected emerging talent, the initiative, titled “A Common Thread,” will be accompanied by a video series highlighting the stories of struggling fashion businesses. The series will launch on March 26 at the Vogue and CFDA websites.

Those interested in contributing can text THREAD to 44-321 or donate online at A Common Thread’s official charitable platform. Applications for funding will be available on the CFDA website starting April 8. Applications are not limited to Fashion Fund participants or members of the CFDA.
