Christian Siriano in South Carolina

BPR Field Reporter Philip C sends us this account from Columbia. Thank you Philip!

On December 2, 2008, Christian Siriano premiered his Spring 2009 Collection at Coplon’s, to benefit the University of South Carolina’s Dance Team. My friend Katie and I - along with a couple of our friends - arrived at the boutique store around 6:30pm. The doors opened at 7, and we had the opportunity to mingle and get ourselves situated. Thanks to our friend Lindsay, we got front row seats and so we really got to see the clothes up close and personal.

Around 7:30pm, we were greeted to Christian’s runway music and the fashion show commenced. It was awesome to see the clothes in motion and on an actual person. Attendees were awed and clapped as each piece gracefully made its way down the runway. After the show, Christian made his appearance and he was welcomed with cheers and a standing ovation.

My friends and I stayed after to meet and take pictures with Christian. I had the opportunity to talk with him personally and he said that as soon as he gets back to New York, he is going to start on his Fall 2009 collection. Overall, the fashion show was a huge success, and I look forward to seeing Columbia women rock his awesome pieces!

We are definitely proud of him and his achievements at a young age and we wish him always the best in all his endeavors. Thank you Christian, for your time and kindness. Keep it ferosh!
