The Associated Press:
"Some of Siriano's most striking pieces were made from a fabric print created using an aerial photograph of the Italian coast line — "flipped, modified, repeated and saturated with Volcanic and Oceanic colors," as Siriano described in his notes. The result was a richly intricate pattern that looked almost animalistic rendered in reds and orange and like a deep ocean cartography in blues."
"Siriano is a natural showman, so wearability seems beside the point. But his weakest moments came when he strived for it — as in a fitted khaki funnel neck dress with blue piping — and when he totally ignored it, as in an ocean print body suit that was unflattering on the model, who looked famished even by model standards.
But he showed a capacity to wow with some of his tamer pieces in shades of blush, nude and khaki — there was elegant draping, delicate pleating and gathered flounces at the shoulders and hips, two body parts getting a lot of attention at Fashion Week."Stylelist:
"I really went into the show naive and didn't know the industry. Once the show finished and I won and got the support of Victoria [Beckham], Heidi [Klum] and Nina [Garcia], I realized I didn't want to do anything else but start a collection. I just went with it and it's been rolling ever since. I know it's reality TV and I say funny things and can be sassy but having a collection was always my goal. For other winners, that's not always the goal. Being on TV can change a person."
Among the celebrities attending were (click here for pictures) Tori Spelling, Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kristen Johnston, Veronica Webb, Mena Suvari, Kelly Rowland, and Katrina Bowden.
We don't have much to say because we think the collection speaks for itself. It's, by far, the best work he's done. He's really come into his own as a designer and this collection demonstrates a maturity, focus, and point of view that he hasn't shown before. Good for him.
