Rumors surrounding Project Runway alum Christian Siriano's impending wedding collection with Nordstrom have been circulating ever since the designer tweeted the exciting news last week—only to delete the post later. Oops! Too soon. Then, Nordstrom showed the dresss above on the company's website only to list that it's currently not available. So what's going on?
We went straight to the source and asked Nordstrom about the new collaboration and here's what they said: Yes, it is happening! Christian Siriano designed two wedding gowns that will be sold exclusively in their 18 Wedding Suites and online beginning in March. There will also be a trunk show at Nordstrom Roosevelt Field that month. The dress featured above retails for $2,375.
So how did it come about? "We believe in emerging talent and we are big fans of Project Runway and Christian Siriano. We are committed to bringing fashion to weddings and believe emerging talent plays a vital role in that," said Andrea Wasserman, Nordstrom national bridal director.
Sounds like a marriage made in fashion heaven to us. —Stephanie Davila
