First Look: Christian Siriano Spring 2013 Ad Campaign
It’s not exactly a secret that we are enamored with Christian Siriano. His designs are unapologetically glamorous and so girly. The latest ad campaign, naturally, which was shot by Brad Walsh (who also happens to be his boyfriend) at the Waldorf-Astoria and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at American Ballet Theatre dancers Katerina Eng, Isabelle Seiler, and Carolyn Lippert, incorporates that aesthetic. After all ballet, is the ultimate expression of femininity.
The fluid movement, the long lines and the gracefulness of the dancers are reminiscent of an Edgar Degas painting though the campaign is an adaption of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
“I wanted the video to portray the dancers as if each were dreaming about the costumes they’d be wearing in a performance,” said Siriano. “I wanted this collection to feel as light, soft, and romantic as the dancers on the stage and in the painting, but modern enough to be wearable by today’s elegant woman.”
