When word got out last fall that designer Christian Siriano was this year’s Fashion Meets Art celebrity guest, the buzz began and reservations started pouring into the Vero Beach Museum of Art. Siriano, who burst onto the international fashion scene when he won Project Runway’s fourth season, will share his fresh, fun and “fierce” (as in becoming your personal best), style philosophy on Feb. 23.
Fashion Meets Art co-chairs Karen Loeffler and Melinda Cooper are excited to welcome the multitalented Siriano to Vero Beach. It’s been five years since the two women founded the annual fundraising event that features fashion personalities guaranteed to attract an audience. They came up big this time.
As Loeffler enthuses, “Christian Siriano is truly a visionary, a global talent with collections that continue to inspire season after season. He was on our short list right from the very beginning.”
It’s no wonder. Siriano has been making headlines ever since he became Project Runway’s shining star at age 22. If you’re not familiar with the television series focused on fashion design, you need to know it’s fast-paced, stylish fun as contestants, restricted by time, materials and theme, compete to create one-of-a-kind garments.
