MODA FOR FRONTLINERS - This fundraiser was initiated by the Malaysian Official Designers’ Association (MODA), in partnership with FashionValet and IMARET to help the fashion designing and the creative community to buy and sew PPE hospital gowns for our frontliners.


Hospitals are in urgent need of more PPE hospital gowns. PPE hospital gowns are very important to protect them when dealing with patients or screening patients, so that they don’t contract the virus themselves. Because it is disposable, our hospitals need many of them. Please help us protect our frontliners!


The Malaysian Official  Designers’ Association has initiated a project to supply PPEs for frontliners. Funds will be administered by MODA to buy the fabric to be distributed to  designers and volunteers involved to sew PPE hospital gowns as fast as possible.


Together with MODA, FashionValet will help with the fundraising and IMARET will assist the distribution to their network of hospitals.

6. How did this fundraising start and why?

It got first started by a group of fashion designing friends seeing how some of the

KKM frontliners postings on social media that they had to use garbage bags as an

alternative to cover their heads and shoes because the PPE items weren’t available.

So then Melinda Looi with friends like Datuk Radzuan Radziwill, Salikin Sidik, Khoon

Hooi, Alia Bastamam, Key Ng, Chelest Thou, Kit Woo and others started to post on social media urgring help from the public to help by donating funds to buy the fabric to sew hospital gowns and other items. So then Vivy Yusof of FashionValet decided to join us and make this fund raising effort more official by setting up an online fundraising page via KitaFund and invited IMARET to also be part of this nationwide campaign.


In Mel’s words: “We started very small.. it was only among MODA members who were contributing some donation to help to get PPE items to help the frontliners. Then someone tag me on social media .. who are some volunteers to help to make face shields.. Elvina who is the volunteer who hooks me up with Liyana Zainal who is also a volunteer.. We started getting more materials and friends helped with more money to buy the materials.. and designers and home sewists started calling in too.. It was a very humble beginning.. Now we have Fashion Valet and Imaret on board with us to raise more fund.. and so we can buy more materials and PPE items to help te frontliners. “


7. Are the sewers, designers and volunteers compensated for their efforts?

All involved are doing this as voluntary basis and no one is being compensated in

anyway but only through the simple gratitude received from the KKM frontliners.


8. Do I get a tax exemption receipt? 

We unfortunately can not provide a tax receipt at this point.


9. How do I volunteer if I can sew?

Please contact or WhatsApp only your name, mobile

and email address to 012-8580899 or 010-2689220.
