Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2010 Collection Recap
A bevy of A-lister sat front row to preview Christian Siriano’s latest collection the 2010 Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter. Celebrity spotted waiting patiently – Kat Deluna, Veronica Webb, Mena Suvari, DJ Leigh Lezark and Amber Rose but faithful readers may her as Kanye West future ex-wife.
The collection which he described as “very dark, mysterious, and a bit of a ’60s vibe,” was indeed dark–with a strong range of black and grey pieces. For a moment it seemed as the bold & imaginative Christian had left the building and replaced with a tamed version of himself. And, for a moment I was saddened.
He began the collection with his most “ready-to-wear pieces.” Now, while the beginning pieces were pretty they weren’t all exactly thrilling; There was your beautifully draped dresses in wool, cashmere, and satin. You also saw many classic silhouettes and he managed to include some really great deconstructed pieces such as the Grey Chevron Wool Swing Coat. Additionally, he was spot on with some of the trends we are seeing the season, such as the high waisted pants and metallic pieces. His metallic silk chiffon raglan sleeve blouse is stunning. But just when you were ready to give up on seeing the bold Christian that some of become accustomed to, he shows up in the form of his bold fuchsia looks. The crowd and I, were noticeably pleased.
His fuchsia satin faced organza drapped cocktail dress with side loop, is a stunning example of what I love about him. That said like any good entertainer he saved his best for last when Sessilee Lopez walked the runway in his organza drapped bodice and scalloped tulle gown that seriously got a standing ovation from the packed house of fashionistas. And, with that the show ended and my faith in Christian Siriano was restored.
Oh, and the shoes were amazing also part of his payless collection.
Stay tuned for images but in the meantime take a lot at the finale.
