I had the opportunity to attend the most amazing show yesterday!
Christian Siriano debuted his Spring Capsule Collection with Lane Bryant at the United Nations followed by the Empowering Women Summit. Actress, Danielle Brooks, Models Ashely Graham, Candice Huffine, and Precious Lee were among the models who graced the runway. Not to mention some of your (and mine) favorite bloggers also ripped the runway! (Go Nicolette, Gabi and Beck!)
This 27-piece collection is dripped in unicorn greatness. Every. Single. Piece. I’m not sure how I am going to be able to justify purchasing an entire collection to my boyfriend but I am going to try. From the fit, to the bold colors, Christian got this right for us plus size girls!
The finale piece worn by Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black) will be what we’re all talking about and wearing this summer. It’s a gorgeous canary yellow flowy gown that hugs you in the right places and just so happens to be the perfect “Let’s stunt on the kids” dress.
“These are the clothes you want to wear when you walk down the street and want to make heads turn,” Brooks tells PeopleStyle.
Siriano’s goal was to incorporate vibrant colors into the collection. “We took a lot of inspiration from 1950s ice cream parlors,” he said. “I wanted there to be a lot of prints and stripes and textures, but still feel modern, with a little vintage feeling as well. I think the clothes are really great, wearable, fun and fresh, and that’s what we wanted to see.” (via People.com)
In the spirit of transparency, save your coins and call your friends before you plan your alphets (lol, I know how to spell it) because we’ll all be wearing these gems this Summer!
Thanks Lane Bryant & Christian Siriano.
