Christian Siriano and the Craft of Complexity

by Samantha Mitten

Christian Siriano is slowly expanding his bridal line after jumping in head first last season to craft his first bridal line. But don't let that fool you as he knows exactly what he is doing. From frothy tulle skirts and textured embroidered bodices, the collection is full of consumer favorites. While it is not what you would call a revolutionary collection, it still has the soul and the essence of a Siriano piece. And as his bridal collections slowly take shape it is worth noting that his ability to fuse commercial need with artistic expression has reached a new level and that bodes well for all the to be brides.
