The recent floods affecting several states in Malaysia have upended lives and left a trail of destruction. To help out, several names in the Malaysian fashion industry are galvanising support among their fans.

Melinda Looi, who is president of the Malaysian Official Designers Association, has put out a call on her social media for everyone to contribute in any way they can.

She has been in touch with the Red Crescent Society. She is asking her followers to donate to the organisation, whether in cash or with items like masks, sanitisers, diapers, dry food, clean water, blankets and more.



Fashion label Mimpikita is collecting essential items, as well as clothing to be donated. Anyone able to help can drop off their donations at the flagship store in Bangsar.

Mimpikita will also contribute a portion of its sales to selected organisations, which can further assist in providing essential supplies for victims of the flood.

Menswear tailor and designer Shahrin Bahar, on the other hand, has pledged a month of his earnings to those in need of financial assistance. This is to help anyone who requires money to recover from the natural disaster.

Other designers and brands have also posted up notices on Instagram stories, directing followers to various charity organisations that are offering aid to flood victims.
