Christian Siriano, fashion designer and winner of season 4 of Project Runway, is engaged to his longtime love, musician Brad Walsh. Siriano's designs have been seen on celebrities such as Heidi Klum and Victoria Beckham; Walsh has supported Siriano's fashion career by composing music for his runway shows. The pair have been dating since 2007 and living together since 2010.
The couple announced the news on Sunday via their Twitter and Instagram accounts, revealing a unique detail about the engagement: the pair exchanged bracelets instead of traditional engagement bands. Siriano posted a photo of the mixed-metal bracelets (below) to his Instagram account with the caption "Yesterday @bradwalsh and I exchanged engagement bracelets!"
Walsh posted a similar image of the bracelets to his Instagram and Twitter feeds, along with a sweet message about how the pair had already shared the good news with their mothers.
We've told our moms so now we can tell you. Yesterday we exchanged engagement bracelets. http://t.co/NIRLUPUBDR— Brad Walsh (@BradWalsh) July 29, 2013
