Above are some of my favorite looks from Christian Siriano's (of Project Runway fame) show at New York Fashion week. I think all of the designers on the show this season and previous seasons are amazingly talented. Imagine, to be able to create runway pieces without a pattern out of all sorts of materials under incredibly stressful conditions in a day or so. They all deserve credit. However, it seems to me that Christian, above all the others, has really proven his mettle post Runway.
I absolutely love the pattern on the material which, according to his notes, are aerial photographs of the Italian coastline that were "flipped, modified, repeated and saturated with Volcanic and Oceanic colors." They're just so gorgeous and fascinating to look at. I don't know...something about the way he used technology, but ultimately the end result is still so wonderfully organic. Lovely.
