Christian Siriano has played with fringe and metallic fabrics for his spring/summer 2020 collection.
The American designer unveiled a line as part of Paris Fashion Week for the first time on Wednesday, with the spectacle at the Place Vendome drawing in celebrities such as Karlie Kloss, Alicia Silverstone, Larsen Thompson, and Shannon Purser.
“A little finale in Paris, what a dream! Thank you everyone,” Siriano wrote alongside a video of models parading the runway on his Instagram page, adding: “Can’t believe we just showed our collection in Paris! Thank you everyone for all the hard work!”
Coco Rocha opened the presentation in a mint green metallic ensemble with draped sleeves, with the outfit followed by a number of looks in a light green, black, and white colour scheme.
Siriano, a vocal advocate of inclusivity in the fashion industry, cast a diverse range of models in the show, including Marquita Pring, who rocked a black jumpsuit, 71-year-old Maye Musk, who dazzled in a gold suit with eye motif print and oversized belt, as well as Precious Lee, who turned heads in a shiny purple crop top and a rainbow striped skirt.
Partway through the presentation, Siriano dropped in a line-up of black evening outfits complete with glittery fringing.
Other key outfits included iridescent raincoats, pink glitter suits, evening gowns in hot pink and marigold taffeta, and a series of dramatic ballgowns, such as the black tulle dress with huge skirt which was worn by Daniela Aciu.
Accordingly, Siriano’s celebrity friends were quick to praise the range, with Kloss writing on Instagram, “Proud of you and your Paris debut,” and actress Christina Hendricks adding: “I’m so jealous!!!!!!! I love you guys.”
