Christian Siriano can expect to win big when it comes to his collection for Spring 2018. He made sure that every potential consumer was envisioned on his runway — and it was a smash hit! 

Siriano included a slew of Black models to grace the runway as well as a numver of multiple ethnicities (Asian, Spanish, etc). And they weren’t all sample size! Full-figured beauties, like Precious Lee, were represented too and left the crowd wanting more — like “Saturday Night Live” actress http://www.refinery29.com/2017/09/171551/leslie-jones-new-york-fashion-week-christian-siriano-appearanceLeslie Jones, who was cheering the models on the entire show

The clothes were beautifully tailored with flowing ruffles of chiffon and satin (sculpted into tulip-shaped dresses), abstract cut-off tops were worn by gender-less models (another nod to inclusion), and the colors ranging from yellow to mint green were standouts! 

Siriano isn’t just a “Project Runway” alumni (and it’s been a long road since his beginnings from that show), he’s solidly established himself as a fashion industry veteran, right alongside the names of Zac Posen, Alexander Wang and Olivier Rousting. Cheers to maturity and dedication to one’s craft, well done, Mr. Siriano!
