Recently, Wintour teamed up with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Amazon to form A Common Thread, an initiative
that has raised over $4.9 million to support small- and medium-sized businesses in the fashion industry with forgivable grants. Apparel produced by grant recipients is then marketed on a virtual storefront called Common Threads: Vogue x Amazon Fashion, allowing designers access to Amazon’s massive customer base, an important show of support for the fashion industry in difficult economic times.
Wintour’s commitment to helping designers in a time of need shows her compassion and respect for the industry, as well as a deep understanding that with great power comes great responsibility.
