5 plus size models rocking the runway at the Christian Siriano SS’17 show during NYFW

Christian Siriano took us on a trip to the Isle of Capri in his NYFW SS/17 show today. He also added not one but 5 plus size models to his show and they looked amazing. Let’s just say that Siriano just made history today by having one of the most diverse runway shows during fashion week. The participating plus size models were: Precious Lee, Sabina Karlsson, Marquita Pring, Georgia Pratt and Alessandra Garcia Lorido.

Ever since Siriano collaborated with Plus Size retailer Lane Bryant, he has become a champion for diversity and the go to designer for plus size celebrities who even though they have lots of money, designers refuse to dress them because of their size.

Siriano’s collection was fabulous, it included gorgeous prints, stripes, his signature gowns and let’s not forget about the accessories, they were gorgeous too, from the shoes to the hats, sunglasses and the handbags.

Siriano said this after the show: “I just thought it was super important to have women of diversity on the runway this season”, he also added: “It was the right time, I thought it also made sense for the collection”.

We are happy to see beautiful, curvy models on the models and we hope that more designers do the same. Another thing that we love about the show is that it was livestreamed on the designer’s Facebook page for everyone to see.

With a palette of black, white, turquoise and orange, we expect to see of few of those gowns on the red carpet over the next few months during awards season. We are loving this collection, Christian Siriano always comes through, doesn’t he? We got mad love for him.
