Have you ever wondered who the designer of Samira Wiley’s wedding dress was? TheOITNBactress wore a bridal gown earlier this March and, just by looking at the newly releasedChristian Siriano bridal spring 2019 collection, it is not that hard to understand why she headed to the talented American designer’s showroom. Her choice actually urged the designer to design a similar wedding separate for this latest bridal spring 2019 collection of his, as hordes of fans began asking Christian Siriano to include similar styles in this line-up as well.
Wiley’s bridal dress, which consisted of an utterly elegant off-the-shoulder crop top and a ball skirt, really exuded Siriano’s soigné figures and visionary styles, the leitmotifs of which inevitably were at the core of this latest Christian Siriano spring 2019 bridal collection as well. Siriano himself, during a private walk-through at his showroom, quickly explained the reason behind such a choice, revealing he wanted to focus less on the trends but rather more on “what our customer really wants.”
Often regarded as a contemporary minimalist, Siriano transposed his own concept of a “modern wife”, namely one who wants to have fun always looking flawless, to a dream array of 16 different looks, among which the separates inevitably dominate. Although the collection does include more conventional bridal dresses, the separates are those that embrace the “modern minimalist” concept most, as they make it possible to also change one’s outfit just in time for the wedding party.
“Brides are still coming back to these dresses season after season because they have to be classic, they have to be timeless in their own way,” Siriano continued. “They want to have fun. I’ve noticed they get one night and they want to have costume changes. It’s so interesting the requests we get.”
Overall, Siriano’s bridal spring 2019 collection features four different, yet distinctive leitmotifs, one of which includes one of Christian Siriano’s acclaimed bridal trademarks, the jumpsuit. Here refined with sheer appliqués, Siriano’s bridal jumpsuits give the designer’s visionary creativity a voice for sure, and we now expect always new jumpsuit styles in the years to come.
The other three motifs include Siriano’s all-white array of proposals, which is quite surprising for a designer who loves to break conventionality, a clear passion for the bared shoulders and the sweetheart necklines, and ultra-flared lines on the gowns, which add a delicate sense of romanticism we cannot help but fall in love with every time Christian Siriano delights us with a bridal collection. As seen in the range of jumpsuits, even for the gowns and the separates lace plays a huge role, completing almost each proposal with intricate embroideries that are literally to die for.
With the price tags varying from circa ,500 to ,000, we bet this Christian Siriano spring 2019 bridal collection will become one of next year’s biggest bridal fashion successes worldwide.

Christian Siriano has never been afraid to use fashion as a medium through which powerful messages could be spread, and theChristian Siriano fall/winter 2019-18 ready-to-wear collectionwas no less so. Siriano’s take on the autumnal season injected the New York Fashion Week’s streets with both Siriano’s standard high/low fashions (although here being more predominantly luxurious), and with political motions that won’t go forgotten for sure.
All in all, the Christian Siriano fall 2019 rtw collection was inspired by a trip Christian Siriano recently took to Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park, which is a majestic park that was named after its red sandstone formations that, when reflecting the sun’s rays, appear to be on fire. Transposed to fashion and filtered through Christian Siriano’s lens, such sandstone formations and dunes were translated to waves made of cloths, sunburnt colors and an overall sense of peace that wafted in the air as soon as the first model made her appearance.
Siriano’s trip to the Fire State Park was a way for him to escape the world and just let himself get overwhelmed with peaceful sensations of serenity, which he wanted us to experience when looking at his latest creations. “The last couple months I needed a break, and driving through the park you feel like you’re in a dream,” Christian Siriano explained to . “I wanted everyone out there to kind of take 20 minutes to just dream. There is a lot going on in the world, but for a moment you can take yourself out of it.”
Sophisticated and predominantly filled with evening proposals, although some separates make it possible to mix-and-match and play with different styles, Christian Siriano’s visions on the fall/winter season is an extra-sensory one, with everything from the sequined embellishments to the soft velvet fabrics transforming day-to-day figures to fashions from a parallel world. Although being closer to the most iconic Seventies-inspired silhouettes in styles and lines, the proposals could be regarded as neither too vintage, nor too modern, as Siriano indeed managed to freeze his creativity in time giving us a one-of-a-lifetime experience.
While the evening dresses were mostly pompous, with either ultra-flared lines taking our breath away, or sinuous long dresses stealing the spotlight with their fluid lines, the separates focused on oversized detailing and dramatic prints, which transformed plain items such as pencil skirts and trousers, suits jackets and blouses with strategic cut-outs into something we yet had to experience and see.
Siriano’s color palette of choice was particularly interesting too, as it featured both soigné burgundies and copperish browns, and fancy combinations such as pink and red, which are already one of the most featured color mixes of 2019.
Then, after leaving us with Zen vibes that could help anyone become estranged from the chaos of the world for at least 10 minutes, he concluded his fall/winter 2019-18 collection with a signature Siriano fashion statement, namely a play black t-shirt with a powerful “people are people” print emblazoned on the front.
