Summary: No one can bring the startling glamour like Christian Siriano. Most arguably the most successful of the Project Runway classes, he aims to shock and awe spectators every season. “For Spring ’12, my inspiration is exotic tropical underwater specimens found while traveling Bali, Honduras, and Belize,” Siriano said. ” I was inspired by these underwater creatures – their origins and how they developed these textures and colors.”

Drawing much inspiration from items of the sea, including coral reef, jellyfish and shell, this concept is demonstrated in each ensemble, as well as the shoes. Many of the heels, which will be appearing in the upcoming Payless Shoe Source collection, focus on these strong points by connecting the line between the reptilian skins and airy, lightweight fabrics.
