The industrial and corporate sector has been hit hard by the Coronavirus outbreak leading to lockdowns. And fashion too remains one of the severely affected industries.
In order to extend help to the designers and helpers, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) had set up a Covid-19 Support Fund in the first week of April.
A day ago, which is almost a month later to the setup, the payment needs have been addressed for all those who applied.

Moreover, on thursday, FDCI has announced the opening of second round of funds for all non-FDCI designers who have approached them for the help.
The chairman of FDCI, Sunil Sethi wants to extend help in every possible way. He stated:
“We have to look after fashion designers and the future of the fraternity, so the trust was formed and designers were given monetary help. However, as we’re awaiting contributions and have a few left in our kitty, we will now be helping out non-FDCI designers. More than 100 applications are in. By next week, we will shortlist and process payments.”
