Christian Siriano said about his collaboration with Lane Bryant, “In my opinion, fashion should never be defined by size. Regardless if it’s for red carpet or a day at the office, every woman should feel stylish and comfortable in their clothes. I’m excited about this partnership with Lane Bryant because it allows me the opportunity to showcase my designs on the everyday woman and allow them the opportunity to feel as beautiful and fashionable as possible.
No stranger to designing for plus size, Siriano recently designed a gown for blogger Nicolette Mason. Nicolette’s gown was beautiful with tulle in a pale shade of blush, sequins and jewels in a floral pattern. Quite a fairy tale wedding gown, indeed!
We look forward to seeing what Christian comes up with for 2016!
