Christian Siriano Is Making Brides Of All Sizes BeautifulBy Patty On Site | October 24, 2017 | Style
These days I find myself gushing over anything bride related. I tap into my emotional girly side: the little girl who always dreamt of Prince Charming, the ring and needless to say – the gown!
My Pinterest boards are dedicated to an array of ring styles – I am more knowledgeable of ring shapes, karat sizes and little-known facts about diamonds. My reference level had always only been what I saw in the movies.
I’ve always felt if a bride is to wear a wedding gown, wear a gown – a voluminous gown of luxurious with a modern style neckline. A gown just like Cinderella!
Every gown should have a story to tell. Enter Christian Siriano, Project Runway winner turned famous designer. Christian is extremely delightful and caring. But what makes him so special is that he gets it!
Christian has the masterful skill set to know how to design for all women. His wedding gown collection launched in April 2017. He first debuted a collection for Kleinfeld. He has since expanded his bridal collection with the mantra, “It’s less about trends and more about what the consumer wants.”
I was privileged enough to visit Christian Siriano’s bridal showroom. Each gown was breathtakingly and beautifully delicious: ball gowns of lace and twill with sweeping church trains of stargazing fantasy. He wanted the collection to feel as romantic as ever, with frothy tulle skirts and embroidered bodices. The collection was diverse enough to fill every bride’s taste and style.
As I walked through the showroom, one of his gowns had a story to tell. The pattern applique was inspired by his Mom’s wedding gown. That is such a sweet romantic sentiment.
The very best thing about Christian Siriano’s bridal gowns is the size range! His new collection of gowns goes up to a size 26. A full-size range of wedding gowns is rare in the design world. Women over a size 12 get married and want to look like a fairy tale while doing so. Not only is he filling a void in the market, his no-brainer decision is wise for business.
Christian has made my wedding dress dreams come true. Now I just need to find my groom!
