"Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Chanel will contribute to providing protective clothing to frontline personnel during the COVID 2019 pandemic.
"Louis Vuitton will join in sewing protective clothing to keep health-care workers safe from infection. The company reported the transformation of some French production facilities for the production of hundreds of thousands of protective masks, which will be handed over to health workers. In addition, thousands of gowns have already been urgently sewn for the staff of six hospitals in the capital.
The British brand Burberry has also dedicated some of its sewing equipment to mask production. About 100,000 pieces are being delivered through the global supply chain to the National Health Service for delivery to medics. The brand's Yorkshire factory, where coats were previously sewn, will produce gowns and masks for patients.
The French brand Chanel is preparing to start sewing gowns and masks for doctors. After approving the prototype and obtaining the approval of the authorities, the company will start special production of protective clothing.
