This Thursday and Friday Neiman Marcus Copley Place will host designer Christian Siriano for an intimate presentation of his Resort and S/S ’12 collections. One of fashion’s favorite wunderkinds, Siriano is as well known for his ebullient personality as he is for his jaw-dropping designs. So, yes, come for the fabulous frocks, but also come to get a chance to meet this charming personality.
From ultra-feminine silhouettes to his virtuosity of tailoring, the collections are not to be missed. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing the Spring 2012 collection at NYFW, and, frankly, cannot wait to get to see these pieces up-close-and-personal.

Directly following the post pride-weekend haze, Christopher Kane unveiled his Resort 2012 collection. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed someone inject fun into elegance this succinctly. These dresses shine, they glow, they radiate! Inspired by prisms and color spectrums, just looking at the dresses makes me feel gay. No really, I can’t stop smiling. I’ve never seen a rainbow look this refined, and although the colors might not garner looks from the bros chilling on their fraternity’s terrace, they promise markedly more thrilling encounters.
The balance between blacks and colors, the use of shape both in the cut of the garment and the textile pattern – unimpeachably good. Judicious use of lace and lame consummates the deal. Pair anything in this collection with rainbow nails and never be depressed again.
Up-and-coming designer Prabal Gurung decided to try something new to debut his first ever resort collection; creating a music video with MIA protégé Rye Rye to her song “New Thing.” The video takes inspiration from and prominently features pieces from his Resort 2012 collection.
I don’t know about you, but I like seeing the clothes presented in a more vivacious way than the same old runway. I certainly do more than strut in heels in my favorite outfits, and now I know anything from this collection will look good no matter how crazy I may get on the dance floor.
