The Show: Christian Siriano Spring 2013
The Theme: This “Project Runway” alum was inspired this season by the whimsical movement of ballet. His show this season was a story of love and romance in fairyland. The designer wanted the collection to feel light, soft and romantic, but modern enough for today’s elegant woman. One of the main components in American designer Christian Siriano’s show were his shoes (he even included flats!). Each style is named after a woman and the designs are perfect for evening or simple enough for day (and are accessible to all, thanks to his deal with Payless!).
The Color/Palette: Neutral/pales, sea foam, and blush
Best/Collection’s Signature Standout Look: The dramatic gowns at the end of his show were by far the standout pieces, and signature Siriano style, including a strapless tiered tulle gown in watercolor.
The Show: Son Jung Wan Spring 2013
The Theme: One word can describe the shapes by Korean designer Son Jung Wan and the woman that wears her pieces: romantic. Light and airy dresses were complimented by Princess Leia buns and braids during her Spring 2013 show. Her shapes appeared as both sexy and luxurious. The designer also playfully included hints of metallic with touches of lace and tulle into her soft, silk and linen designs.
The Color/Palette: Yellow, neutral, teal, and raspberry
Collection’s Signature Standout Look: Out of the 42-piece collection, the ultra-feminine dresses stood out the most; a gold sequined cutout dress, a teal print pleated dress and a silver peplum dress were favorites.
