After state governor Andrew Cuomo shared the urgent need of basic protection, the fashion designer promised that his team, which included 'sewers and pattern makers,' will help to make them.

AceShowbiz - Fashion designer Christian Siriano has pledged to make face masks for New York medical workers treating coronavirus patients.

The "Project Runway" star made the announcement after state governor Andrew Cuomo revealed his fears that first responders and other essential medical personnel will run out as they attend to the sick during the coronavirus pandemic that has forced the Big Apple into a lockdown.

"If @NYGovCuomo says we need masks my team will help make some," Christian wrote on Twitter. "I have a full sewing team still on staff working from home that can help."

Siriano's representatives are now in touch with staff in the Cuomo administration to discuss "how this will work," a spokesperson for the designer tells BuzzFeed.
