Season's Round Up # 23: CHRISTIAN SIRIANO SPRING-SUMMER 2013
I think this is the first time I’ve ever looked at Christian Siriano’s designs post his win from Project Runway. I’ve always been a fan of his during the 4th season of the show. I thought his showing during that season showcased his vast potential as a designer and I think this season, his SS2013 RTW Women’s Collection has brought to the foray some of that potential. Though most of the pieces I’ve seen are wearable, I think what I miss from him is the sense of flair and dramatic which I believe he’s capable of. Some of the designs that went down the runway this season seemed stale in comparison to what he’s been known to create. That being said, there were definite stand-outs from the collection, in my humble opinion, and these are what you see above. Absolutely adored the latter part of this collection where we start seeing evening dresses and gowns – which I really think is his forte. Looking forward to seeing more from him but for now I guess we’ll have to be wait and see how he continues to improve and evolve in his craft.
