COVID Survivor and Emmy Nominee Designs New Merchandise

Trevor Dow was motivated to design the line after battling COVID-19 and being in isolation for 3 weeks. Part of the proceeds of his line will be donated to Mental Health America.

LOS ANGELES - Sept. 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Daytime Emmy nominated Designer, Actor, Musician, Social Media Personality...Trevor Dow holds many titles. One of the most significant in 2020, though, is COVID-19 survivor.

While he was fortunate with only having mild physical symptoms, the emotional toll of three weeks of isolation had a lasting impact. He came forward and shared his journey in battling COVID-19 with his honest and raw COVID-EO Daily Log that tracked his progress following his positive diagnosis and is now using his platform to educate people about the mental health impacts of COVID-19…whether you've had a positive diagnosis or not.

"The vast and rapid change in every day life because of COVID-19 is impacting us all," Dow shared. "Even if you haven't had to deal with COVID-19 directly, we're all facing a lot of change and uncertainty which has a direct impact on our mental health."

Trevor designed this special collection with one goal in mind: to reflect the strength and resilience of everyone in the world who is working together during this pandemic by helping each other, staying positive and showing empathy whenever we can.

There are 4 themes that feature Trevor's seamless blend of compassion, humor and a touch of sarcasm:

  • COVID Conqueror: Two strong designs that declare the wearer is conquering COVID either through a positive diagnosis or by wearing a mask, social distancing and taking precautions.
  • COVIDIOT: Quite simply, a "Covidiot" is someone who isn't taking precautions to protect themselves and others from the virus. One design features a dictionary-style definition that Dow wrote and the other a text bubble that simply states "Don't Be a Covidiot".
  • Mask It or Casket: A spooky mask and shirt design just in time for Halloween!
  • Lead with Empathy: Dow's strongest message is one of empathy and compassion. His acronym "MEMA" stands for "Make Empathy Matter Again" and his personal slogan "Lead With Empathy" comes through in his upbeat personality and how he navigates the world.
  • "Kindness is so important and if we all are just nice and empathetic to one another, we can get through anything," Dow said.

    Dow's line is available now through his production partner, Our Virtual Holiday, who found Dow after his viral TikTok video about wearing a mask.

    "We have a fun character as part of our brand named the Mask Debater Hero who gives awards to people across the social media who advocate wearing a mask," owner of Our Virtual Holiday, James Brandon said. "We gave Trevor one of the awards and started talking to him about designing something special after hearing his story. He's a strong positive presence that we need in the world and we're excited to partner with him on this journey".

    20% of the profits of every purchase will be donated to Mental Health America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all Americans.

    Trevor Dow's Exclusive Line is available now at on the Our Virtual Holiday website at:

    NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream.

Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours.

    Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

    Sep 25, 2020

    NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

    Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

    Sep 25, 2020

    LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

    Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

    Sep 25, 2020

    NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

    ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

    Sep 25, 2020

    NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
