Christian Siriano F/W '12

Strangely, this is the first time I've gone to a Christian Sirano show since I saw him in the Project Runway finale show! Possibly because his first major show in the tents was such a mess most people didn't get in and I just didn't want to bother again. This season I decided to try since he was off-site, but it was a bit of a cluster again. I got stuffed in the third row and have crap photos, doh!

This season Siriano was inspired by bats, particulately from the '30s film "The Vampire Bat." You can definitely see the wings in many of the pieces, lots of fluttering and dark, gothic colors.
The above capelet sheath dress also came in white and was quite lovely!
His main talent has got to be evening wear - Siriano is all about drama! His pieces belong more on the red carpet than the average woman, which is perhaps why I never actually see his clothes for sale anywhere. 

Check out all the pictures, sorry they're not the best but shooting between heads is difficult!

And a video!
