Amid the rise in COVID-19 cases in Malaysia, frontliners continue to be at risk of infection as there is a shortage in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The Malaysian Official Designer Association (MODA), pledged to use their dressmaking skills to produce the much-needed PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) gear for hospitals.

Spearheaded by Melinda Looi, President of the Malaysia Official Designer Association, the initiative kicked-off after she received numerous calls and messages from the fashion design fraternity who all showed significant interest in aiding the front-liners in the fight against the outbreak. Speaking to the New Straits Times, Melinda shared that through the help of some well-known local designers they are targeting to create and distribute between 80,000 to 100,00 pieces of PPE. The message from Melinda was apt, “Leave the sewing to us, go save lives.”
