Armani will make medical overalls for hospital workers

Founder Giorgio Armani has also donated $2.2 million in recent weeks to hospitals around Italy
27 Mar, 2020

Fashion brand Armani said on Thursday it would start making single use medical overalls for hospital workers at all its Italian factories.

The group -- whose brands include Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani -- said they would be used for "the individual protection of healthcare workers engaged in the fight against the Coronavirus disease."

Founder Giorgio Armani has donated 2 million euros ($2.2 million) in recent weeks to hospitals around Italy, including Bergamo and Piacenza in the hard-hit north, the company said.

It was not immediately clear how many factories the company operates in Italy. Like many other fashion brands, Armani has in recent years moved much of its production out of Italy to other countries where labour costs are lower.

And charge them fortunes. If there ever an opportunity to make money, that these designers don't cease? Make it and give it away for free then we'll talk.
