You'll have to indulge me for a day or so here . . . what with Fashion Week in full swing in New York for the next few days - I'm feeling like I can't keep holding off postings until our usual Sundays. So, it's Monday. And it's still about fashion.
Now, I'm not anything close to what might be considered a reality television fan. In fact, I kind of despise it. There's more than enough un-spupervised actual drama in my day-to-day life . . . thus I've never felt the need to import producer-created drama from the TV.
But . . . somehow . . . I have the most vivid memories of watching Christian Siriano when he was on Project Runway all those years ago. He was a talent that practically FORCED me not to surf past another Bravo reality show. I probably only saw the last few episodes of the season - but, he was clearly a force of nature!
That brings up to this weekend. Though I've seen a few of his designs on the red carpet over the past few years - I'm not sure that I've ever really stopped to consider him as one of the new American designers. Until I saw his runway show from last week.
This is some good stuff. Chic. Stylish. Theatrical - but, still thoughtful. And with a very specific point of view. The guy has a clear future.
Here are a few of my favourites from the show . . .
