“DO IT! JUST DO IT!” Ah, pleasant memories of the 2015 YouTube video of …
Designer to the stars and internationally acclaimed fashion innovator, Christian Siriano (pictured below) teamed up with special-sized women’s retailer Lane Bryant to launch the hautest collection in both evening and ready-to-wear designs for the everyday woman. The fourth of designer partnerships for Lane Bryant, Siriano is most notable for impeccably designing for Hollywood leading ladies Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Oprah, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Solange Knowles, and more.
A first of collaborative efforts between Siriano and Lane Bryant, the highly anticipated collection went live April 27, 2016, to feature fashions indicative of old-school glamour and whimsical inspirations to truly up the ante for the American retailer.
Dubbed the “new king of old school glamour” by Elle, Siriano infused vibrant colors, intricate details, modern tailoring, and delicate fabrics to truly bring a versatile and fresh perspective to the existing Lane Bryant selections.
“In my opinion, fashion should never be defined by size,” said Siriano. “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.”
Teaming up with Siriano and Lane Bryant to bring the new collection to life was actress Danielle Brooks of Orange is the New Black, Broadway play Color Purple, and also close friend to Christian Siriano. Posing to perfection in the multi-faceted designs, Brooks showcases the flattering silhouettes of the new collection in addition to the spirit embodied within the line. From A-line skirts, to hip-hugging gowns, it looks as if Siriano has yet another hit on his hands.
Prices for the Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant collection range from $48.00 to $198.00 and can be purchased online or in-store at any of Lane Bryant’s 775 nationwide locations.
