In keeping with the mission of Fashwire, this global initiative will raise both awareness and needed funds for those in retail who have been immediately impacted by COVID-19. “The challenges facing the global fashion industry cannot be underestimated. Witnessing the deep effects this pandemic has had on our designers was the driver behind #FashGive Fridays.” stated Fashwire CEO and Founder Kimberly Carney. “This initiative is core to our mission. While we stay true to our DNA of continuing to discover fashion everywhere, we are also leveraging our powerful global marketplace of designers for a worthy cause.”
Fashwire will donate $1USD of every app download to #RetailersUnited, an industry wide organization COVID-19 relief fund to source and distribute PPE to those on the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis. “Kimberly Carney and Fashwire are true visionary leaders. There are many challenges for all of us right now and they are a true marketplace that is providing inspiration for all of us. #RetailersUnited is honored to partner with Fashwire to save jobs and save lives as we get PPE to the frontlines and help the retail industry get back on its feet,” said Deborah Weinswig, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Coresight Research.
With an immediate reaction, the #RetailersUnited initiative was created connecting a group of key players across manufacturing, retail, the medical industry and tech. “Fashwire has always been on the cutting edge in the fashion industry with our technology partner Hooman Hamzeh, the CEO of DevelopingNow, and his team. Having the technology to be nimble has given us the opportunity to quickly and effectively partner with RetailersUnited.org,” stated Kimberly Carney.
