Christian Siriano has a big week ahead of him. Not only is it New York Fashion Week, but he also has a big launch in the works. The Project Runway winner is coming out with his own beauty line which will debut at his September 7 runway show. For the line, Siriano partnered with Sebastian Professional to create new products, as well as design the packaging. His inspiration? Siriano told WWD that he admires the business model of his former Project Runway judge, Michael Kors:
I think the whole idea is that now fashion is really about building a brand, a lifestyle, a head-to-toe look — hair, makeup, shoes and accessories.
Did we mention he also a fragrance deal planned for 2014? We can’t believe how fast Siriano is building his empire (which already includes a shoe line for Payless). Current Project Runway contestants, you better be taking notes!
