The monthly edit of fashion bag inspiration for February, from instagram was due last week. And with the fashion shows previewing AW’22/3 in full force, the month’s round-up is always a bumper one. However, on 24 February the news came through of the invasion by Russia into Ukraine and since then it has been 9 days of shocking headlines. Breaking with tradition, the following fashion inspiration edit isn’t the top 5 bags of the month but instead, a spotlight on five of the fashion brands that have come out showing a different kind of force, support for relief in Ukraine. If you are looking for ways to support, here are some destinations being championed by fashion brands.
Making a stand
Here are the brands’ instagram feeds showing their support. Donations from the fashion industry are being sent to various organisations, typically, the United Nations World Food Programme and UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). Check them out for more details.
Chanel and Prada are also providing donations to the UN Refugee Agency and support continues with other brands sharing their solidarity with the citizens of Ukraine. If you would like to make a donation to the UNHCR, you can do so here.
