It’s CULTED with your 60-second NEWS BLAST.

The CFDA has launched a new project called “A Common Thread”.

Anna Wintour and Tom Ford announced the new initiative yesterday. It will see the iconic CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, which supports emerging designers, repurposed to support those with businesses that have suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vogue will also be launching an accompanying video series which will highlight outstanding fashion businesses and individuals who have been affected by the outbreak. The video series starts today and will highlight the work of those behind-the-scenes, as well as designers.

In a statement for Vogue, Anna said:

“I have […] been hearing from those who fear they won’t make payroll, or who have seen orders returned, their stores closed, who fear their businesses and their livelihoods may not survive what we’re going through. And all of us at Vogue — together with the Council of Fashion Designers of America — are determined to help.”

You can support the fund and the affected designers by texting THREAD to 44-321.

Who would you like to see helped through the project?
