Backstage Banter With Christian Siriano

Michel Serruya

After finishing up his show at the Tents, we caught up with Project Runway alum and all-grown-up designer Christian Siriano in the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge backstage at Bryant Park. [Ed: check out Christian's cute BF Brad Walsh looking all-business on his cell in the background].

Your show just ended. How are you feeling?
I am good! But I'm tired and I want to go home and get something to eat.

First thing on your agenda this morning?
I had a fitting with Amber Rose!

What was going through your mind?
I was excited and I thought we were ready. You always second guess yourself and look for what doesn't work, but other than that nothing too crazy.

How do you prepare yourself for a day like this?
You take lots of vitamin C and echinacea. I am not a big fan of all-nighters, we don't work past 1 a.m. because at that point everyone's tired and cranky and hates each other. I feel like it's not worth it. If you can't get the dress done, don't put it in!

What's next for you?
I am looking forward to a little break but Market Week is all next week and that's going to be a  process. Actually, that's more stressful than putting on a show: the buyers are the divas!
