NYFW SS16: Christian Siriano

Reality to runway

The Project Runway alum tones down the drama for maximum effect

Siriano drew inspiration from the imperial cities of Morocco, particularly the textures of traditional Moroccan wedding blankets. Called handira, the blankets are usually made in anticipation of a wedding. Siriano has been engaged to long-term partner Brad Walsh (who produced the music for his show) since 2013—perhaps this is an indication of his upcoming nuptials?

The collection consisted of mostly white and blush tones but closed with just four looks in a violent burst of peach, aqua, yellow and mint green. Siriano has no shortage of celebrity supporters, and Coco Rocha, Christina Hendricks, Leigh Lezark, Alicia Silverstone and Maddie Ziegler were all spotted in the front row.
