Just when I thought Christian Siriano couldn’t outdo himself after last season’s show at the Eyebeam Atelier in Chelsea, making Degas’ “Dancers” come to life in fashion, he did it again at his fall/winter 2013 show on Saturday afternoon.
The warehouse setting quickly turned dramatic with a chandelier and Christian’s theatrical touch. Even his talented (and adorable) partner, Brad Walsh’s beats helped create the feel of the show’s inspiration: the golden age of the Russian Opera.
The palette of mainly black and gold was divine, making Versailles look a little less opulent next to these designs. In true Siriano style, every single detail was thought out and you can tell every gem, bead and military trim was strategically placed.
Yes, this is the same guy of Project Runway fame, but if it weren’t for Miss Jay strutting back stage, you may forget that looking at quite possibly his best collection yet. Now how does the designer that is beyond his 27 years top himself next season?
