Christian Siriano Is a Proud Thrifter and Wants You to Be One Too

The Project Runway mentor is revamping the way people thrift through a new project. 

Christian Siriano Thrifting

Trailblazer, fashion designer, and Project Runway mentor Christian Siriano is ready to tackle another important fashion movement— sustainable fashion, with a focus on thrifting.

In an effort to help remove the stigma around purchasing used clothing, Christian recently teamed up with consignment company, threadUP, to create a chic, universal logo to proudly identify second hand-clothing. (Think of it as a little thrifting badge of honor.)The logo comes in two options, each featuring the word "thrifted" atop a reimagined hanger with a turquoise, white, and black color scheme. "Thrift loudly," is the message Christian shared along with the new logo. 

Known as someone who practices what he preaches, Christian is no stranger to the eco-friendly tradition himself. "One of my favorite thrifted items is a cool black moto jacket that I got at a cool thrift store in London years ago. I still wear it today!" he told Us Weekly in a recent interview. "Well-made pieces can stand the test of time and every time I pull it out of my closet I remember the story behind it," he added. "I love that it’s special and no one else has anything quite like it.” After all, isn’t that what having your own sense of style is all about?" 

The designer also makes as much use of his wardrobe as he can. "I love to shop my own closet and rediscover things I haven’t worn in a while, or style them in new ways," he revealed. "It can be tempting to want new things all the time, but you don’t need something new to have fun with fashion. It feels good to get creative and repurpose what you have."
