It’s no news that Christian Siriano is a body diversity pioneer, and in the spirit of championing the goodwill of body positivity he walked five plus-size models (Precious Lee, Georgia Pratt, Marquita Pring, Sabina Karlsson & Alessandra Gracia) down his New York Fashion Week runway, and also dressed Ashley Graham, who sat front row.
The Project Runway alum and red carpet denizen cemented his role as champion for all women with his Spring / Summer 2017 show on Saturday at New York Fashion Week. Siriano casually cast five women size 12 and above for his runway lineup, without issuing a press release or staging a trite body-positive marketing campaign or pushing a hashtag.
If you didn’t know of his many exploits, you should know that he stepped in to dress Leslie Jones when no one would style her for her Ghostbusters premiere. He also made plus-size blogger Nicolette Mason a custom wedding dress. And if you’re a size 14 or above, you might just own something from his Lane Bryant collaboration. isn’t he the perfect fashion hero?
