Christian Siriano
Christian Siriano Christian Siriano attended the Baltimore School for the Arts and further studied fashion in London, where he interned with Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Now known for fantasy evening gowns, cocktail dresses, and tailored sportswear, the Christian Siriano collection debuted at New York Fashion Week in 2008.

Oprah Winfrey calls his designs "works of art" and Tim Gunn calls him "a prodigy--the next great American fashion designer." His designs have appeared in fashion magazines around the world and on leading ladies in every field of entertainment, from stars of film (Sarah Jessica Parker, Elizabeth Olsen, Emily Blunt, Chloe Moretz, Rosario Dawson, Christina Ricci) to icons of music (Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Fergie, Nicki Minaj, Pink, Carrie Underwood) to stars of television (Christina Hendricks, Heidi Klum, Allison Williams, Kristin Davis) and darlings of fashion (Victoria Beckham, Leigh Lezark, Alexa Chung), to name just a few.

The Christian Siriano RTW collection can be found at department stores and specialty boutiques around the globe, and in 2012 the first stand-alone flagship Christian Siriano store opened in New York City. Siriano also designs four seasonal collections of shoes and bags for Payless ShoeSource--an ongoing guest designer collaboration since 2009--as well as a bridal collection for Nordstrom and a makeup line for Victoria's Secret. Other design partnerships have included clothing and accessories for HSN, Puma, LG, Starbucks, Spiegel, and Regatta/Li & Fung. He is the youngest person to ever appear on the Crain's 40 Under 40 list, and he co-founded accessories e-commerce retailer "Send the Trend" and served as Chief Curator until its acquisition by QVC in 2012. The brand will launch its first fragrance in early 2014.
