Christian Siriano #RTW Spring #NYFW

"The cavernous, multidimensional glass sculptures of Australian artist Sergio Redegalli got Christian Siriano thinking about the 'effects of transparency' for Spring 2015. The designer experimented quite a bit with layers, building dresses from sheets of striped organza, or adding spiky crystals as an underskirt peeking out from the bottom of the brocade cocktail dress. The colour palette was icy, moving from white to glass-green to navy, with graduated colours in between. Many of the textiles were inspired by Brooklyn artist Tara Donovan, whose installations are made out of ordinary things like Styrofoam cups, fishing line, and plastic drinking straws. Dramatic evening wear is Siriano's bread and butter, and he dutifully offered his client plenty of options. But Siriano says that his customer is more interested than ever in pieces for day, so he is working hard to get his sportswear right." -
