s/s 2012 new york: christian siriano.

#NYFW collections Uncategorized

ever since he made his debut at new york fashion week, i’ve had a certain opinion of christian siriano’s work. theatrical and show-y, not something for every day wear probably sums it up. he’s made great gowns for the red carpet, but how often is a regular girl going to show up at a premiere? his spring show, however, was miles away from what i thought of his clothes, but in a very good way. sleek t-shirts, paper-bag waist palazzo pants, draped day dresses, and long belted vests mingled seamlessly with more flirty looks like chiffon blouses, ruched sleeve shirts, and tiered cocktail dresses. and for evening, he even showed tulle skirts paired with a striped tee, rather than overpowering ball gowns. crisp colors like citron, tangerine, and white dominated, with a touch of nude and muted florals, but nothing outrageous, which suits this girl just fine. this strong showing has definitely put siriano on my radar come spring and seasons to come.
