We've featured Christian Siriano's designs numerous times as he's a red carpet favorite for Tinseltown's most stylish stars. His head-turning numbers ooze the glamorous, princess vibes that so many women want to channel for their wedding day—bringing fairy tales to life through fashion. And he's dipped his toe in the bridal business once before, having created custom wedding dresses for friends (who happen to be some of the world's biggest celebrities and influencers), as well as producing a capsule collection with Kleinfeld.

It took some time, but now Siriano has decided to embark on a full-fledged bridal gown collection: full of all the color, texture, and style that we have come to expect from his main assortments. We caught up with the designer ahead of his show at Bridal Fashion Week to talk about why this was the right moment for his new endeavor, his celebrity style muses, and what else is coming up for his brand this year.

What made you decide to embark on creating your bridal line at this moment?

We have done custom for so many years that it was time to expand the business and try something new. The Kleinfeld team was so wonderful and they invited me to show a full collection for their customers. It was the perfect timing.

You already worked on a capsule collection with Kleinfeld, so was the partnership on a full-fledged collection just a natural step?

Yes, we thought if we could offer more styles to more women then that would be a great thing.

You've long been a champion of representing all sizes in your designs. Was it important to include both petite and curvy options in your assortment?

I think this collection is for every woman and any bride can find something in this collection. We tried to celebrate all types of women. I have always felt that was important and in bridal, perhaps even more so.

Who are your favorite celebrity style muses?

I love so many different types of women. Taylor Swift, Zendaya, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Lady Gaga are a few of my favorite ladies. I just love women who have fun with fashion and take risks.

Bridal gowns have also been worn on the red carpet and not just for the ceremony! Do you have any women you'd love to see in the collection this year?

I think there are a lot of dresses in this collection that could be worn on the red carpet. I never have anyone specific in mind, but I always hope for the best and hope that someone really chic will want to wear them!

Is there any possibility of having bridal accessories like shoes and veils included in your collections in the future?

Yes, those are pieces we will be working on in the next few years.

Pre-wedding festivities are also great moments for a bride-to-be to showcase her fashion sense. Do you have any looks from your past few collections that you think would work well for an engagement party, bachelorette party, and even a rehearsal dinner?

I think we have so many and we have dressed women for those exact occasions. I also showed a few short and fun party dresses in the collection that could be worn for all the different events leading up to a wedding. Even a flirty party dress to dance the night away in.

What other projects do you have on your plate for this year?

Well, next up we show our Lane Bryant collection in about 2 weeks so that's exciting: I can't wait for that collection to hit stores. We have some really fun projects with it and a really great actress is the face of the collection. Stay tuned!
