Since debuting his namesake collection in 2008 at New York’s Fashion Week, Christian Siriano has become one of the most influential and talked-about fashion designers in America. From couture red-carpet gowns to affordable shoes for the average buyer, his eponymous collection spans a broad consumer base. Christian Siriano is celebrating ten years in fashion with his beautiful, new book DRESSES TO DREAM ABOUT giving many of his fans a glimpse into his world for the first time ever.
Known for the lavish details and sophisticated structure and movement of his dresses, Siriano begins each collection by sketching hundreds of silhouettes. “Like watching a film,” he elegantly states, “there is always a story, and something to remember. With this book, I want to share that story.” DRESSES TO DREAM ABOUT details the creative journey of Siriano’s designs, starting from an original sketch and ending with a dreamy, finished, gown. Photography by Brad Walsh, Christian Siriano’s husband showcases Siriano at work in his Manhattan studio and narration by the designer himself track the design process, and give a behind-the-scenes look at the work of one of America’s leading young fashion stars.
