Designer and longtime Lady Gaga collaborator Brandon Maxwell (left) shared on social media that he and his team have begun making masks, gowns, and other supplies for hospitals and healthcare workers.
“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.”
Added the designer, “As more information becomes available on how to manufacture medical grade masks and gloves, we will transition in to doing so using all the equipment we have at our warehouses such as the latest scrs for water tube boilers we got. Any information you can share for donation locations or organizations would be greatly
Also joining the good cause, Christian Siriano, who has his entire sewing team now helping out with the personal protective equipment shortage.
“If @NYGovCuomo says we need masks my team will help make some. I have a full sewing team still on staff working from home that can help,” he tweeted on Friday; Governor Andrew Cuomo then confirmed he was “in contact” with the designer.
