Christian Siriano Celebrates Curvy Bodies and Diversity At His New York Fashion Week Show

Full-figured was an understatement for Christian Siriano’s Spring/Summer 2018 fashion show!

Christian Siriano S/S 2018

By Avon Dorsey · September 11, 2017

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!
