Fans of Christian Siriano rejoice! If you have always been a lover of his creations and you have a wedding to plan, it makes perfect sense for this piece of news to make you squeal with joy! The first-ever Christian Siriano spring 2017 bridal line has officially been launched by the 30-year-old American fashion designer in partnership with Kleinfield from “Say Yes to the Dress” and we no longer have to be major celebrities to be rocking his style. He had some glamorous ball gown on “Project Runway” but they will be nothing compared to what the blushing brides shall be adorned in come their big day as they walk down that aisle.
This is not the first foray into the wedding gown designing business. On the contrary, all designers need to amass a certain amount of experience before releasing a new line that we expect will continuously be updated. As such, we have seen Siriano creations on fashion bloggers before, as well as his friends and family members, before he plunges into work specifically for the “Say Yes to the Dress” bridal boutique.
The collection includes a wide array of pieces, the inaugural collection shown but hours back, with sizes ranging from the petite to the plus, ranging from $3,500 to $10,000, housed in a suite opened up just for the designer’s works. It is a Christian Siriano for Kleinfield collection all right and we are curious to see if there will be any cameos on the show from now on.
Gorgeous and frothy is how Siriano does it, with a penchant for fantasy and a love for fairy tales. The pieces are quite extraordinary themselves, featuring embroidered column dresses, cropped designs with long trains and embroidered collars, tailored suits, lots of tulle and overlays along with a whole lot of lace, long sleeves and strapless, long hems and minis, mermaid looks and total ball gowns. The Christian Siriano spring 2017 bridal collection really has it all, including a few darling looks in feathers and some sequin slip dresses. The best has to be the jumpsuit.
To date, entering the bridal business has been daunting for Siriano. It is certainly a big undertaking and not to be taken lightly. In one particular interview with Fashionista, he mentions, “I have never really turned it into a collection just because it is such a big undertaking. It was just one of those things where I was kind of 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.”
Indeed, the decisions have been sound and his claim to fame will certainly be that particular partnership with Kleinfield since it has grown to infamy over the top bridal show in North America. Siriano is certainly in demand, especially after that stunning creation he pulled together for blogger Nicolette Mason’s nuptials. People from all around will be enjoying the new line and can plan on having Christian Siriano a few years from now as well since it appears he is here to stay.
As for the styles of his gowns? “We’re trying to offer a little something for every woman,” says the designer. “The young bride who wants something sparkly and pretty and princess-y, I want her to be able to get that; and then I want that really cool, downtown girl, who is modern and minimalist, to also be able to find something, because I think that’s how brides are now.”
