Inundated by the severity of recent events, the fashion world has seen an industry-wide response to the global efforts in halting the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
LVMH announced last week, the rededication of their fragrance factory to producing hand sanitizer and brands from Pyer Moss to Prada have reassigned their staff to manufacturing protective masks for healthcare workers.
Recent developments have pushed self-imposed isolation into government-sanctioned lockdown in major cities all over the world, with the unprecented closer of bars, venues and restaurants.
In these days of self-isolation, as we long for our beloved haunts and events, we urge everybody to stand together and stay home to keep each other safe.
In response to recent events, Clash are launching an intiative with our good friends at Hype in support of artists and those fighting to stop the spread of Covid-19.
In the first of a series of global, design competitions, we invite creatives to submit your own interpretations for our theme 'Strength In Solidarity', as we stand with our communities and those battling this crisis all over the world.
Clash & Hype Creative Directors will judge and select 3 winners for each category; T-Shirt / Long Sleeve T-Shirt / Hooded Sweatshirt.
Items will be retailed via The Clash Shop & the Hype webstore, shipped in fully recyclable packaging at the earliest opportunity.
The contest launches today, Monday 5th April at 11:00 BST, and ends on 20th April 2020 at 17:00 BST.
Winners will be notified by 17:00 BST on 24th April 2020.
Please note entrants can submit designs for all 3 categories if they wish.
