The fashion designer offered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo assistance in sewing more face masks. "If @NYGovCuomo says we need masks my team will help make some," Siriano tweeted. "I have a full sewing team still on staff working from home that can help," he tweeted. 

In addition to his tweet, Siriano posted on his Instagram, "I have sewers and pattern makers ready to help, working from home; we just need all the information on how to help."

Siriano's office will be working to produce masks for all of those working in medical facilities, including nurses, receptionists and social workers. "We're just working on logistics now; who will get them first, how many we can physically make," he adds. "Hopefully, we can make a thousand in a few days. That's the goal."

One for a cause; what are your thoughts?
