In this time of pandemic, people come together (although socially distanced) to do what’s right and what’s good for all. Earlier this month, Malacañang declared the fourth week of March 2020 as the National Week of Prayer, urging Filipinos to unite in prayer and to face the crisis together. Through the declaration, President Rodrigo Duterte asked everyone “to pray for the recovery of those who are now suffering from Covid-19, for comfort to those who lost loved ones, and for the protection of all, especially the most vulnerable sectors of society.”
In response, a group of renowned fashion personalities, spearheaded by talent manager and publicist Keren Pascual, offered a moment to say the Lord’s Prayer as a show of solidarity and response to the Covid-19 crisis.
Participating personalities included Raymond Guitierrez, Kylie Verzosa, Liz Uy, Hannah Locsin, Enchong Dee, Lou Yalong, Tim Son, Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez, Jasmine Maierhofer, Miko Raval, Phoemela Baranda, Lesley Mobo, JC Buendia, Robby Carmona, Joey Samson, Leah Puyat, Rajo Laurel, Patrice Ramos Diaz, Jackie Aquino, Tessa Prieto Valdes, Nicole Cordoves, Francis Libiran, Jullian Culas, Mauro Lumba, and Aya Abesamis. Their efforts were collated into a video titled “Fashion Prays.”
In the local fashion industry, many designers and companies have also opened up their studios and factories to help produce face masks, face shields, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
