Pledges to Make Masks, Gowns, and Scrubs for Healthcare Workers By Mar 25, 2020 Gap With hand sanitizer and surgical masks becoming increasingly scarce due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus, some of fashion's most recognizable names are stepping up to do their part to help combat the shortage.

Fellow luxury goods company Kering joined the movement and pledged three million masks and announced that its brands Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent are preparing to use its facilities to manufacture masks"while complying with the strictest health protection measures for their staff members, with production getting underway as soon as the manufacturing process and materials have been approved by the relevant authorities."
