Renowned fashion designer Christian Siriano will host his first-ever bridal show today, April 18.
Siriano has partnered with Kleinfeld of Say Yes to the Dress fame for this debut collection. Kleinfeld initially tapped the designer for a capsule range which turned out to be a huge success, prompting the designer to launch an official bridal line.
In an interview, Christian spoke about the collection: “I never really turned it into a collection just because it’s such a big undertaking. It was just one of those things where I was kind like, ‘Do we do it? Is it possible? Do we think it’s a great business decision?’ As my business gets bigger and we have more team and help, I think now is the perfect time.”
Siriano is known for his whimsical, frothy, and gorgeous gowns. For this collection, the designer took inspiration from Monet and Degas’s paintings for that impressionistic and romantic feel.
I wanted to make sure that they feel ‘bridal,’ but also a little bit more fashion and not like such a typical beaded dress. We have that, but there’s also some kind of new, innovative techniques that we’re using,” he added.
Now, bride-to-be’s will be able to don a Siriano on their wedding day without the custom price tag. Prices for this ready-to-wear collection ranges from $3,500 to $10,000, and will be available in petite and plus-sizes as well.
