Christian Siriano Fall 2012 Collection
Christian Siriano’s always had a flair for the dramatic in his designs, but there was something more refined about the kind of drama he was serving up this time. There was a sense that he was appealing to a more sophisticated and slightly more mature customer. There were, of course, plenty of the gorgeous gown confections for which he’s known, but they were sleeker and more chic than the exuberant princess gowns of the past. Also on display were a range of pared down dresses and separates in blacks, whites and reds; the kind of simple, chic clothes the discerning customer would buy and pair beautifully, with modern details or shapes to make them interesting and typically Christian. He continues to grow as a designer, which is part of what makes him so watchable, and this collection shows a more grown-up and elegant take on his aesthetic.
