In partnership with the Mask Task Force powered by the Las Vegas Fashion Council, Fashion Show Las Vegas today announced a donation of 400 handcrafted masks to The Valley Health System, including Summerlin, Centennial Hills, Desert Springs, Henderson, Spring Valley and Valley Medical Centers.

Crafted by local designer Larissa Navarro, owner of Tailor Shop by Larissa, the Las Vegas Fashion Council and Fashion Show Las Vegas together provided support to both local aid workers and medical personnel in need of face masks and face coverings.

Navarro has provided nearly 5000 face masks and face coverings to date, producing from 150 up to 300 masks per day.

Each mask is made of 100% woven cotton and are machine washable, as well as CDC approved.

The Mask Task Force powered by Las Vegas Fashion Council was assembled due to the dire news of the mask shortage, amongst other items, to fight the COVID-19 crisis and support our front line medical and health workers, senior centers, food banks, CCSD food distribution volunteers and more.

The Mask Task Force has donated over 4000 masks to the Las Vegas community due to generous support of volunteers and sponsors similar to Fashion Show Las Vegas.
