Fashion Houses In Italy are set to reopen and so far they’ve had a good number of staff who have resumed, Tho there are still some fashion house who weren’t granted approval to reopen.
But now, the Italian label looks set to be coming out of the other side of the situation, opening up one of its factories in Tuscany and welcoming 300 members of staff back to work.
Prada, however, will not be taking any chances with the health and wellbeing of its staff, it has said, going to unprecedented measures to keep them safe. This includes buying in enough antibody and viral tests for each employee to take every month, which will be a significant investment.
Employees will also be given personal protective equipment to wear during shifts, will have hand sanitiser at work stations, and the rooms will be thoroughly cleaned twice daily.
The first set to open is the Arezzo factory in Tuscany, which is responsible for producing much of the leather goods, apparel and footwear.
If this first measure goes well, Prada will look to partially open a number of other factories in order to create its upcoming collections, including for spring/summer 2021, which will be the first from Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada’s new partnership.
