Christian Siriano + Disney’s The Pirate Fairy = Magic
My imaginary love affair with Christian Siriano is very well documented. I did his designs. His clothes. His footwear collections. Everything. Because, I stan for Siriano I was even invited to his home and its as magical as you would imagine. I geeked out, as one does, when in the presence of an imagined friend. However, I composed myself enough to chat about his resort collection, his home, and most randomly we chatted about his favorite Disney personality.
At that time, it was just a random question that I asked. And yet today comes news that Siriano is partnering up with Disney to bring to life the newest addition to the world of Tinker Bell and Neverland in The Pirate Fairy. That’s the problem with imaginary friends– they don’t always tell you everything. Still, I got the scoop on the partnership.
For the project, Siriano worked with filmmakers at Disneytoon Studios on Zarina’s pirate fairy costume. The result is darn magical. Its whimsical. Ethereal and so Siriano. “I loved the challenge of this project. I haven’t designed for an animated character before, and I’m excited to take my skills into Zarina’s world,” Siriano explained. “She’s a unique and new character and I wanted to help make her memorable and iconic. Disney characters are everlasting and I’m so happy as a young designer to help create a bit of Disney history.
