Fashion Industry Helps Out Italy's Earthquake Victims

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."

I am willing to send hand a body warmers to Italy to help everyone living in Tent's in Italy, so they can stay warm at night, I am looking for someone to help me get them there quickly from Montreal Canada.I can send about 50,000 warmers, my problem is it would take 6 weeks to get there. Is there anyone in the Italian Community in Montreal or Toronto that can transport these warmers quickly.Thank You,Tony Palladini - Heat Factory Canada 866-993-4328 - 514-739-2800

that's great that they're doing that. but, the earthquake did not happen in Rome, Rome felt it and some of the aftershocks, but suffered no destruction. it was in l'alquila (in Abruzzo... Rome's in Lazio)- and that's the city they'll be helping with recovery.
