Christian Siriano Inspiration:
Christian Siriano’s spring 2014 collection is inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres (the “Island of Women”) off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The architecture and bright tropical colors of the residential buildings, the crafts, handmade textiles and the Caribbean coast served as strong influences for the colors and silhouettes of the collection. The collection – like the women of the island – is bright, young, fresh, and romantic and is a celebration of women.
