So I'm sitting watching Johnny Weir on Larry King Live the other night (duh.), and a question comes in asking Johnny what it's like to be so fierce. And my mind instantly jumped to images of Christian Siriano because he's become, well, synonymous with the word "fierce." But guess what? "Fierce" is so so last year (even Johnny alluded to that.) Instead, Christian prefers to "have a moment." And, well, he's having one on Bravo in a one-hour special entitled Christian Siriano: Having a Moment, Monday, April 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
And now I'm just going to steal straight from our press release because, honestly, I can't say it much better:
Bravo's Fan Favorite and Season 4 winner of Project Runway, has outlasted the typical 15 minutes of fame and Siriano’s fashions are now sold at some of the hottest department stores and boutiques in the world. In this special, we'll get to see a glimpse into the life of the mini-mogul – who immediately resonated with fans and fashionistas alike on Project Runway – as he prepares for fashion week, overseeing every aspect of his line from start-to-finish, model fittings, Emmy-dress appointments and balancing work and life with family, friends and work associates. It will all culminate in the highly pressure-filled buyer meetings where Siriano will learn whether all of his hard work will pay off.
Working alongside Siriano is a talented staff of characters including his assistant fashion designer and hometown friend Sam, first assistant Micole, Swedish assistant Ewa, hard-working assistant Melanie and interns galore. They all chip in as he calls the shots on who goes where, what gets made and who wears what. Life can get hectic with meetings, fittings and interactions with celebrities like Mena Suvari, Katrina Bowden and Tori Spelling. Luckily, with a lot of caffeine and the support of his boyfriend Brad, Siriano handles it all as he gears up for his third runway show. Watch a sneak peek of the special:
