Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week – Christian Siriano Spring 2011 Collection

13 Sep

It was called a snafu, a mistake, an oversight…..whatever you want to call it, I was not able to go to Christian Siriano‘s show.   Disappointed??  Hell Yeah! 

I had also had plans to meet up with a dear friend who was going to be at Christian’s Siriano’s show!  I haven’t seen her in years (I know crazy!), for she was covering many of the runway shows being held throughout the week as well, so I was super EXCITED! 

We, for some reason always miss each other at these type of events, so we were both pysched..only to find out, I had no ticket, no seat, no buzz…which left me sad,  acting like I was 7 years old sad!  I’ve gotten so many apologies up the wazoo, I tell you!  Dinner promises to my favorite restaurants, drinks..you name it!  LOL  I accepted!!<smiling

I so have to remember that the tickets are so hard to get and even though I enjoyed his show last year, there should be no expectancy that I can go every year; it’s by invitation and press glory.. there’s no guarantee!  None!  Well, it’s Monday and it’s a big day!  My friend Al, says starting at nine in the morning to nine at night he’s busy, including Betsey Johnson at 6pm, and one or two after parties (it’s only work, lucky him!). 

Anyway enough about my sad story, you all are interested in Christian Siriano’s designs for the Spring 2011 and video of the show below has just been posted this morning.  I have also attached, my dear friend Lisa’s commentary on the show (also just posted this morning) via her blog on www.examiner.com with some beautiful photos!  She will be at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this week also, so check back to her blog to see other designers too! <we are going to connect, promise!http://www.examiner.com/bridal-fashion-in-new-york/christian-siriano-spring-2011-leaves-you-speechless-yet-again?cid=examiner-email


Be well – Letia 🙂

P.S. I was able to see a glimpse of Christiano Siriano at NYC’s Saks Fifth Avenue Fashion Night Out…it was packed; such a buzz. ANDDDD, I was able to go to Manolo Blahnik‘s trunk show, let’s say I left there walking very happy!  I’m off!

Spring 2011 Presentation with Christian Siriano and Mercedes-Benz NYC Fashion Week!

26 Aug


As promised, as I get the news, I’m passing it along! NYC Fashion Week will showcase Spring/Summer: September 9-16. The plans for fashion week at Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park are taking shape for Spring 2011 collections, that will not be available to consumers for six months or so, while most shops are filled with clothes for fall and winter.

Don’t have a ticket? Coveted invitations to New York’s Fashion Week will be a little easier to snag next month, with the unveiling of a public runway show designed to inspire shoppers to add to their wardrobes for fall and winter. While designers will be showing their collections for Spring and Summer 2011 exclusively to retailers and the media, the September 7 public fashion show to kick off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will remind consumers of the styles they can buy now, organizers said on Wednesday.

Exclusively for American Express Platinum Card® members, Spring 2011 Presentation with Christian Siriano: experience an evening of dramatic fashion at Saks Fifth Avenue beginning with a private cocktail reception and designer dialogue between Christian and industry insider, Rachel Dodes. Following, have an exclusive opportunity to order his Spring 2011 Collection straight from the runway as well as shop with Christian from his current ready-to-wear collection with a $200 Saks Gift Card.  Tickets go on sale August 30!

Christian Siriano

Here’s Christian’s show last year!!!  I can’t wait for this year’s show!  I know, I don’t have to say it…but I am…he’s one of my favorite designers!

There’s this special night called Fashion’s Night Out! Cardmembers can take advantage of an exclusive American Express offer during the second-ever Fashion’s Night Out. Register your eligible American Express Card at americanexpress.com/entertainment to receive a $100 statement credit when you spend $500 at a participating retailer, anytime from September 2, 2010, and continuing through Fashion’s Night Out on September 10, 2010. Participating New York City retailers include Tory Burch, DVF, Intermix, Theory, Helmut Lang, and Domenico Vacca.

If you can’t attend, don’t worry, there will be so many commentaries and shows on TV to fill you in on all the ins and outs!  The do’s and don’ts, it won’t cost you a thing!   But do watch, have fun…it’s so much work that goes into pulling this off and has offered jobs to a lot of people for this week long event.


Be well – Letia 🙂
