At the start of the pandemic, Anna expressed her gratitude for those supporting American designers affected by the pandemic through the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, A Common Thread.
‘I have been so moved by acts of philanthropy in the fashion community in particular, and, of course, by the many donors large and small who have supported A Common Thread, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund we’ve created to help American designers in this challenging time,’ she wrote in a piece for Vogue.
She urged readers to hear the stories of these designers: ‘Listening to these incredible talents talk without pretense about what they’re going through is a profoundly emotional experience. It reminds you that our fashion community is exactly that—a community of people, who need our help as never before.’

Several months following the memo, a group of 18 Black journalists who have worked with her over the years accused her of favoring employees who are thin, white, and from elite backgrounds in a piece published by the New York Times.
