Vivian Blu teams up with Vouge and CFDA

"Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune without the words And never stops at all"

Emily Dickinson

When I think of all of the people affected by COVID-19 due to pre existing upper respiratory conditions, it scares me. I have family, business associates, customers and friends who live with chronic asthma daily. . . . People with moderate to severe asthma may be at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19. COVID-19 can affect your respiratory tract (nose, throat, lungs), cause an asthma attack, and possibly lead to pneumonia and acute respiratory disease. I think of the isolation they must feel, one that we all feel. I know I do.

Though, I understand the importance of social distancing during this time, I miss being around other creatives. I miss the laughter and fun that comes with mistakes. I miss the comradery of models during runways and the almost church like gathering of artists and the sharing of information.

Because there is currently no specific treatment for or vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. 

In an effort to assist those higly impacted by COVID-19 Vivian Blu has partnered with Vouge and CFDA on a project called  A Common Thread, a fundraising initiative that tells of the struggles and hopes of the fashion community [via video platform].

"These videos will run across Vogue’s platforms, as well as across Condé Nast, connecting American fashion’s brightest talents directly to our readers.

At the bottom of each video you’ll find information on how to donate to the A Common Thread fund online or over text message. As these testimonials show, fashion is not just an industry of glamour, but one that employs millions of people in our country and around the world who bring joy, hope, and optimism to all of our lives. New videos will be premiering every day, so please follow along as we spotlight these #CVFFACommonThread stories. We hope you will listen and donate to help support American fashion" - Steff Yokta, Vouge.com
