Christian Siriano Discusses Fall 2010 Line & New Reality Series, As a Mermaid!


In other Project Runway celebrity news, Christian Siriano dished to New York Magazine while dressed in a fantastically fabulous Ariel costume from Disney's The Little Mermaid. In true Siriano form, the designer gushed about his Fall 2010 line without skipping a beat or missing a toss of his luscious red locks. "It’s very dark — that’s the only thing we’re going with right now," he said on the collection of fabrics her just received for fall." "It’s very gothic, kind of like a swamp, but we wanted it to be really feminine." We like the sound of it already.

Siriano also touched on his upcoming reality show for Bravo which, in the popular new  formula from The September Issue, will follow the creation of his spring 2010 and fall 2010 lines from start to finish. “It’s very like The September Issue, very Valentino [The Last Emperor]. We want it to be as cool and as real as possible.” In fact, famed documentarian and director of The September Issue, R.J. Cutler, even reportedly advised Siriano on how to be utterly real for the show. "It’s going to be really serious, like not so campy." Siriano said of the as yet to be named series. "There are a lot of moments that are just silent and like working and like really how serious the business is, because it’s really hard, it really is.” When asked if he worries of people take him seriously as a designer, Siriano's face seemingly shone through his mermaid makeup and his fish tail sparkled as he said,“I think they do to a point, but it’s hard, you know, there are so many designers and you really have to prove yourself, so I think it takes time.” We think he's accomplished a rare fashion feat in proving himself as a fiercely talented designer who obviously still knows how to have a good time.
