Christian Siriano, winner of the fourth season of popular TV design competition Project Runway, made a visit to Houston to debut his latest fashion adventure—a book!
Siriano locally debuted Dresses to Dream Of at Uptown Park boutique Elizabeth Anthony on Thursday, November 16. This luxurious clothier is known for attentive staff and wonderful tailoring. With its high ceilings and gorgeous showcase of high-end designers, the store served as the perfect location for Siriano to sign copies of his new book and show off his latest line.
Christian Siriano’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection features colorful designs with a punch, dreamy floral masterpieces that were meticulously crafted, and well-structured peplum pieces. Per Siriano’s Director of Sales, his peplums are unique because they hold their rigid shape due to a horsehair lining. This special detail allows tops and gowns to continuously appear sculpted long after the structures of other peplums fall.
Siriano’s line also featured a variety of lovely purses crafted from vegan leather and faux fur. Christian Siriano is known to be inclusive in fashion, and this line fully delivers, offering pieces for all body types and a range of budgets.
On the eve of his book signing, Siriano’s team had models sporting looks from his latest line while guests snacked on delicious appetizers and wine. The crowd was dressed to the nines and buzzing with excitement—not just because of the bee motifs featured in this line.
In true Christian Siriano character, the designer struck poses with fans after kindly signing books. He also flitted around the store assisting models, customers, and his own staff alike. Elizabeth Anthony’s stellar team impeccably hosted their guests, ensuring that everyone was helped to a spacious fitting room and had all their needs attended to.
Siriano’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection will be featured at Elizabeth Anthony throughout the year, so if you missed the book signing event, do not despair! The in-store team takes custom orders and tailors every piece to fit to each customer’s liking.
