Christian Siriano Spring 2011

There’s much to love about Project Runway’s darling Christian Siriano, and while we were quite dazzled by the oceanic prints of the Spring 2010 Collection last season,  this season proved to be bit more muted. Perhaps it was the color scheme of nudes and caramels and the ever present safari themed jackets and belts. “Wearable” was a word you heard quite often during the show. It was not an unexpected collection–you could say that there were no surprises. Siriano loves the dramatic gown and it was quite evident in his frothy, tulle-laden strapless or one shoulder pieces and simple, classic, ruffled cocktail dresses. His signature gown, or show-stopper, was a crimson one shoulder concoction. And while it was a sight to behold, one wonders if drama need always be the grand gesture.
