Armani Converts Italian Factories to Create Protective Wear for Healthcare Workers

The Armani Group announced that all Italian factories are currently being converted to create personal protective wear for medical workers.  They will begin producing single-use overalls for healthcare staff to wear as they work to support coronavirus patients.

The fashion designer has already donated more than €2 million euro to Italy’s hospitals and was one of the first to cancel runway shows, even before the national lockdown.

“As a young man I wanted to be a doctor”, Armani said.
