Spring/summer design by Christian Siriano (287445)

After winning on Project Runway several seasons ago, Christian Siriano’s career exploded. His modern designs for the fuller figure have really enhanced his following. He studied under Vivienne Westwood in London and the late great Alexander McQueen. This young design star launched his eponymous collection in 2008. Today, his collections are shown each season at Fashion Weeks in New York and Paris to retailers.

Known for whimsical and show-stopping designs, his looks range from fantasy evening gowns and cocktail dresses to tailored sportswear to intricately detailed shoes and accessories. The collection can be found at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and other department and specialty stores and boutiques around the globe. In 2012, the first flagship Christian Siriano store opened on Elizabeth Street in New York City. For women who wear larger sizes, Siriano’s styles are the best!
