Prada to Aid In Production of Medical Overalls and Masks to Fight COVID-19 Pandemic

Prada has announced its next commitment to help stop the spread of coronavirus. The label has revealed that it is set to produce medical overalls as well as masks for the Tuscany Region.

After donating complete intensive care units to some of Milan’s biggest hospitals, Italian luxury fashion house Prada has announced that it is set to produce 80,000 medical overalls and 110,000 masks that will then be allocated to healthcare personnel—specifically in the Tuscany Region, one of the worse hit areas in Italy. It is reported that move is to answer upon the request for assistance from the Tuscany Region, and is set to be delivered by April 6.

As of today, the medical properties are already being produced at Prada’s factory in Montone—which was kept open for this purpose. The label also thanks “the support of a network of Italian external suppliers” for assistance in this initiative.

Prada is one of the many fashion brands contributing in the fight to end the Coronavirus crisis. H&M was also recently reported in manufacturing personal protective equipment for hospitals and healthcare workers while LVMH has announced plans to supply masks to French health authorities after aiding in the production of hand sanitizers.
