Fab Flash: Fashion Industry Comes Together to Help Quake Victims in Italy

Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti are not alone in feeling "terrible anguish" toward the devastating earthquake that shook L'Aquilla, Italy, on Monday. The destructive disaster has brought together a number of fashion industry people to help in the relief effort. Gucci and Blumarine designer Anna Molinari will be donating funds toward the recovery of the city while Versace plans on helping the victims in an "organic way." Fashion house Brioni has also promised to help.

"We will provide extra support following this tragedy, which has affected so many people in the region," said Andrea Perrone, Brioni’s co-chief executive officer. "We are part of the Abruzzo [region] and are directly involved and shocked in what has happened, it will take time to reestablish ordinary life."
