Fashion for a good cause. Canada's COVID-19 shirts are one of the trends that have come from the pandemic and these ones are an incredible tribute to Canada's top female doctors. They also help get personal protective equipment to healthcare workers!

Put out by Silver Icing, a fashion lifestyle brand based in Surrey, B.C., this t-shirt is the lastest in the COVID-19 inspired fashion trend.

The garments have the names of seven female health officials across Canada that are guiding people through the pandemic.

There's Dr. Theresa Tam, Dr. Bonnie Henry from B.C., Dr. Deena Hinshaw from Alberta, Dr. Eileen de Villa from Toronto, Dr. Jennifer Russell from New Brunswick, Dr. Heather Morrison from P.E.I. and Dr. Kami Kandola from the Northwest Territories.

"This tee was created in recognition of their monumental impact on our present-day reality and the immense influence they are having in paving the way for women and girls of future generations," Amy Wasney, director of marketing at Silver Icing, told Narcity.

The shirts come in three different colours - black, red and gray - and cost $39.95 to purchase.

All of the net proceeds from these particular products will be donated to Conquer COVID-19, an organization that's getting the healthcare community access to PPE.

More than $32,500 has already been raised by the sale of them.

"As a community largely made up of women, we recognize the impact these Canadian female leaders have during this defining moment in time," said Wasney.

Conquer COVID-19, which will be getting donations from this t-shirt, also has its own pandemic inspired fashion item for sale.

It's a black tee with CONQUER COVID-19 in white lettering across the front.

All the proceeds go towards buying PPE for frontline workers and vulnerable communities.

Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil coined a unique phrase that got turned into fashion too.

"We don't need online graphs to tell us what we need to do," McNeil said. "We need to stay the blazes home."

East Coast Lifestyle created the tee to help a good cause and McNeil, hockey player Dion Phaneuf and Justin Trudeau all ordered one.

In B.C., the tributes to health officials took on another form.

Boarded up shop windows in Vancouver have been used as canvases by local artists for larger than life paintings of Dr. Tam and Dr. Henry.
