The Knockturnal: What inspired you to write a second book?
Christian Siriano: It’s a retrospective of my work over the last ten years. I wanted people to see my work from the beginning to the end; to see the pieces that got overlooked in the beginning; to see what goes into to the clothes all in one place.
The Knockturnal: There’s so much going on in the world at the moment. How do you stay focused?
Christian Siriano: I have a lot of dream things I want to do and I try to make those happen. I guess that’s how I focus on them. Having a book of all my work or work that I love was very important to me. If I love it and I’m passionate about it, I try to make it work.
The Knockturnal: Have currents events impacted your work?
Christian Siriano: Yes, that’s why my book is called Dresses to Dream About because I want people to open this book and escape the world. Have a minute, look at beautiful clothes and feel great about them. That’s very important-escapism.
The Knockturnal: What other exciting projects are you working on?
Christian Siriano: A million things. We’re getting ready to open another store in February. My ten year fashion show is happening as well. I’m excited.
The Knockturnal: You’ve done so much. What’s still a dream project?
Christian Siriano: I want to do more for film. I just did costume for a film Julianne Moore is in. I did some pieces for a film Patricia Field is doing with Jennifer Lopez, that was really great. I want to do something bigger. That will be in the works one day.
The Knockturnal: What’s your favorite part of the book?
Christian Siriano: The stories, just the little anecdotes about my mom and sister.
The Knockturnal: Where do you get inspiration?
Christian Siriano: Everywhere. Honestly I find inspiration in the most random places: art, culture, the women I am dressing- that’s a big part of it.
