We all knew we would be saying goodbye to Bryant Park when the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York started.
But none of us probably imagined we would be saying adieu to designing talent, Alexander McQueen.
No doubt, many are saddened by his death.
In reflecting, I’m choosing to take a look at many of the great and memorable moments he helped shape in the fashion world.
How did I miss this?!
When @bluefly_com tweeted about Christian Siriano’s new show on Bravo, I found myself voraciously scouring the internet for more confirmation.
Turns out I had the press release all along! *smh*
Now on to the deets!
According to the release, The Untitled Christian Siriano Project will follow the New York based designer as he takes his burgeoning fashion lines and career to the next level.
“Tackling a challenging business environment as well as intense expectations from the fashion community and fans alike, Christian strives to build a groundbreaking career in fashion,” says Bravo.
Siriano’s fabulousness in fashion started when he was just 13. He interned for both Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, and showed his first small collection during London fashion week in the Fall of 2005.
By the way, look out for his book, “Fierce Style: How To Be Your Most Fabulous Self,” (http://www.hachettebookgroup.com) scheduled for release this month.

You must’ve heard of HOME by now.
It’s an environmental film that will be launched worldwide on June 5th (Earth Day) .
It’s meant to raise awareness on social issues and climate changes.
Alexander McQueen has stepped up to contribute to the HOME project with a limited edition of the signature scarf.
It ‘s kinda cool; if you look at it closely, you’ll see that it’s a photo of a dying earth morphed into a skull.
The 200 scarves will be available exclusively at Alexander McQueen stores ( London/ Milan/ NewYork/ LasVegas/ Los Angeles) and online for U.S. customers only from June 2009.
Profits will be donated to www.goodplanet.org.
Target has announced that it is partnering with designer Alexander McQueen for his McQ line.
It’s the kickoff to Target Designer Collaborations–the company’s newest project featuring well-established designers.
We’re told that the exclusive McQ Alexander McQueen for Target collection draws inspiration from British rock band The Duke Spirit.
It launches on Target.com and at select Target stores nationwide March 4, 2009.
The collection will be available through April 14, 2009.
Price points? $19.99-$129.99.
