                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Before Christian Siriano’s dreams to become a designer were made true from Project Runway, he had dreams of being a dancer, having studied ballet as a child. Appropriately, after seeing the American Ballet Theatre’s production of The Dream, he married his two loves into an ultra feminine collection for Spring 2013, proving that he’s no longer a newcomer to the NYFW runways and will be around for seasons to come.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      A palette of dusty rose, sky blue, crème, and ephemeral watercolor moved effortlessly in fabrics of silk, leather and tulle—which has become a signature in Siriano’s work. Tailored separates were romanticized with flowing drapery, jacquard embroidery and metallic stitching, followed by voluminous gowns laden in pearls and feathers.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Each model's hair was tightly wound into top knot buns, with natural face makeup, and neutral nails not to distract from the five new shoe designs that will unfathomably be debuted at Payless. Metallic oxfords, bow-accented Mary Janes, jewel encrusted heels and sneakers were paired with cropped pants and ballgowns alike.
