So on Friday I was backstage for the showcasing of designer Christian Siriano’s SS13 collection. You may or may not have heard of Project Runway- it’s an international show that takes on an array of talented designers and they compete tasks each week to win the overall competition. Well Christian won season four of Project Runway – the youngest contestant in it’s history to do so, and the following pictures will show why.
His collection was ‘ballerina’ themed. Think puffy fairytale dresses, feminine long floaty gowns, lots of white, blush and mint with lashings of pearls and beading. Metallic brogues featured heavily, as did ultra glitter brogues in pinks and blue hues. Stilettos with large bows fastened to the heel were seen in an array of pastel colours. Although his collection was very girly in colour, it also dabbled in masculine tailoring. Shirts, blazers, fitting trousers with the aforementioned brogues as the chosen accompanied footwear.
His collection was a complete success and has accumulated several reviews applauding his work. I’m just delighted to have been a part of it.
