Fashion designer Mich Dulce calls for volunteers in making free masks for health workers

By REY ROBES ILAGAN

In an Instagram post, Filipino fashion designer and milliner Mich Dulce is searching for fashion teams who want to help in making protective suits and masks. Together with her friend Cynthia Diaz, Dulce also enlisted the help of the Vice President Leni Robredo‘s office to distribute the gear.

“My friend Cynthia Diaz has rolls of 75gsm non-woven fabric she would like to donate, that can be made into protective suits, masks, and shoe covers,” the designer said. “Vice-President Leni will be lending us samples of protective gear so we can make a pattern out of it and begin production. My studio will be focusing on making this for the time as my team works from home.”

She has also appealed to friends from the Philippine fashion industry to volunteer operational studios or designers who want to help in turning the donated material into something useful for health workers. “If you have a sewing machine, you can help,” Dulce said. “Once we make the suit patterns, we will make copies of it and distribute together with the fabric.”

For those who want to volunteer, contact Dulce on her Instagram: @michdulce.
