NEW YORK -- If there were a best-view award at New York Fashion Week, Christian Siriano would win it. The sights outside the designer's runway show atop Rockefeller Center were hard to beat: The Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and other Manhattan landmarks, just as the sun began to set on a cold but clear Saturday.
As for the clothes, Siriano looked to the future — the far-off future — with a collection that had an outer-space feel, with shiny silver metallics and highly sculpted futuristic shapes.
Even the colors had a galactic spin: "Pulsar purple," ''comet blue," ''eclipse black," ''astral plane ivory," ''asteroid gray," and "supernova silver."
Celebrities including Debra Messing, Billy Porter, Mariska Hargitay and Christina Hendricks whooped with admiration as some of Siriano's flamboyant designs came down the runway.
