Fashion designer, Christian Siriano has stepped up to aid healthcare workers who are facing a shortage of masks during the coronavirus crisis.
Alongside his team, he has volunteered to help fill a void.
“If @NYGovCuomo says we need face masks my team will help make some. I have a full sewing team still on staff working from home that can help,” he said.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo accepted Siriano’s pledge and called for others to follow suit.
“We’re in contact with @CSiriano. Appreciate his help so much. Who’s next? Let’s do this together, NY!” he replied via a tweet.
By Friday night, the designer was tweeting videos of prototypes, seen below.
“Prototypes are happening,” Siriano tweeted along with another photo before adding there will be “more updates by next week.”
By late Saturday afternoon, he gave an update to his Twitter followers, writing, “Thanks everyone for all the support. We are making waves and working on getting approvals before we start anything. It’s very important before anyone does anything to help, please make sure what you are making is safe and hopefully FDA approved. We must be smart.”
