On Sunday, the country woke up to the devastating news: yet another mass shooting had taken place. In the early hours of the morning, a gunman had entered Pulse—a popular gay nightclub in Orlando—and fatally shot 50 people. (50. It's unbearable.) Now on record as the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, the tragedy has people across the world reeling. The fashion industry stands with the rest of us in feeling despair, disbelief, and—even still—love, hope, and empathy. See insiders' touching reactions below, and click here to see how you can help.
