Christian Siriano Is Officially in the Bridal Game
The designer is taking his custom bridal business to the big leagues.
Starting today, you don't have to be a movie star attending a glitzy red-carpet affair to rock a Christian Siriano creation.
That same flair that made women swoon over Siriano’s glamorous ball gowns on Project Runway will soon be available to blushing brides-to-be seeking a more fashion-forward dress option, thanks to a new venture with Kleinfeld.
After a successful side business designing custom wedding gowns for friends and private clients like blogger Nicollete Mason, Siriano is going mainstream with a custom collection for the bridal boutique of Say Yes to the Dress infamy.
But while the offering includes the classic silhouettes and shapes, Siriano tells Fashionista that he's managed to weave some of his signatures throughout, such as impeccably tailored pleated details and flashes of color. In addition to gowns, the collection also includes an offering of embellished heels for the big day.
The designer will show his inaugural collection, which is available in straight, petite and plus-sizes, at a presentation this afternoon at the store. Also coming to Kleinfeld is a custom Christian Siriano bridal suite which will house his creations (priced between $3,500 and $10,000) and offer the full Siriano experience.
Given the designer's bubbly, camera-ready persona, we have a feeling we may see a Siriano cameo in the coming season of Say Yes to the Dress. That is, if we're lucky.
