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.

In case it’s somehow escaped you, Jason Wu launched his first shoe collection this year for spring 2011 and his designs were to die for. You can see how it was music to this shoe-obsessed girl’s ears when I heard he would be following in the footsteps of designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier by working on a collaboration with plastic shoe purveyors Melissa for spring 2012.  The chance to own a pair of designer shoes I could wear in the rain without a second thought is just too good to pass up!

I have to say, however, I was a little disappointed to find there would only be two shoes in the collection, both based off of Melissa standby designs, the Ultragirl ballet flat and the Lady Dragon slingback.  Not that the shoes don’t look great, but I think we all know Jason Wu is capable of something more impressive than mere embellishment.

Here’s hoping this initial collaboration follows in the footsteps of Vivienne Westwood’s work with the brand, which has now spanned several seasons, and in the future we get to see full Melissa shoe designs by Jason Wu…
