Christian Siriano Nashville Fashion Week Page 1
Yesterday we wrote a post saying that we didn’t quite understand why designer Christian Siriano would go to the trouble of showing his collection for a second time during Nashville Fashion Week. The response to this post is bigger than anything we’ve seen since John Galliano said “I love Hitler.” Siriano himself has even weighed in at this point, explaining his decision to haul his gowns 902 miles south from the Big Apple to Music City.
Nashville Fashion Week is a thing that exists, and Christian Siriano is its headliner. (Betsey Johnson is showing, too.) While hundreds of cities around the world hold fashion weeks — seriously, from Atlanta to Zagreb and beyond — it seems strange that designers who show in one of the Big Four (New York, London, Milan, and Paris) would choose to put on an additional show in a seemingly random location.
