I can’t think of a better place to preview your new line than at New York Fashion Week! Christian Siriano debuted his spring 2013 runway collection on Saturday, September 8th, 2012 at Eyebeam Atelier in front of celebrity fans Brad Goreski, Monet Mazur, Natasha Bedingfield, and Christian Serratos.
It was actually a double debut as the models wore shoes from Siriano’s Gold Collection for Payless on their feet! The spring shoe collection features unique design details like snipped point-toe treatments, uppers rendered in soft hues like seafoam and blush and whimsical polka dots, folded-ribbon bows evoking the ribbon lacing of ballet shoes, as well as a “ballerina oxford” flat design, a first at Christian’s runway show.
“My Spring 2013 collection was inspired by the whimsical movement of the ballet — particularly the Dream Ballet as performed by The American Ballet Theatre, which is an adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Siriano said. “I was drawn to the costumes worn by the dancers and my runway shoes pick up on this theme and feature silhouettes perfect for evening and simple enough for day — including a great flat, a first for me!”
I’m so in love with the pretty colors, stylish bows, and most of all– the price! The bad news? You won’t be able to purchase any of these beauties until February 2013.
