A number of US-based fashion designers, including Christian Siriano and Brandon Maxwell, are using their creative skills to make masks and hospital gowns during the pandemic


In a bid to help fight the COVID-19 outbreak, a number of US-based fashion designers are using their skills and resources to make personal protective equipment – with designers such as Christian Siriano and Brandon Maxwell pledging their support.

Via his Twitter platform, Siriano asked if his team should be working on the project, to which Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, responded with appreciation.

If @NYGovCuomo says we need masks my team will help make some,” Siriano wrote last week. “I have a full sewing team still on staff working from home that can help.”

Maxwell also announced that his team would be doing their bit in the fight against the pandemic.

“In response to the global crisis, we are now focusing our creative efforts on manufacturing PPE (personal protective equipment), starting with gowns,” he wrote on Twitter.

“We have spent the last week researching the appropriate medical textiles to create these gowns and are proud to provide these much needed items to the doctors and nurses on the front lines of this crisis.”

Kerby Jean-Raymond of NYC-based Pyer Moss has also pledged to do what he and his team can, including turning their office into a donation centre for N95 masks and latex gloves, as well as donating $5,000 to obtain as many of these as possible.

“In response to the global crisis, we are now focusing our creative efforts on manufacturing PPE (personal protective equipment), starting with gowns,” he wrote on Twitter.

“We have spent the last week researching the appropriate medical textiles to create these gowns and are proud to provide these much needed items to the doctors and nurses on the front lines of this crisis.”
