To top off a successful week, Christian Siriano draped some of his models in wide-brimmed hats worthy of his inspiration Audrey Hepburn and lined the catwalk of New York Fashion Week on Thursday with hundreds of multicoloured flowers.

First, he designed Vice President Kamala Harris a custom burgundy power suit for the State of the Union address on Tuesday. In just one fitting in Washington, D.C., he got it right.

In a backstage interview with The Associated Press, Siriano said, “And we had the Grammys and fashion week.” “We had no time, so I was like, “Well, we hope it works. It is just such an honour. We wanted to make her look both powerful and beautiful.”

Alicia Silverstone’s iconic “Clueless” yellow plaid skirt was updated by him for her Rakuten Super Bowl commercial, which will premiere on Sunday. He even made a surprise appearance as a debate student in Cher Horowitz’s class.

Silverstone and Siriano have been friends for a while, and she frequently sits in his front rows. This time, she was away filming. Along with Quinta Brunson and Julia Stiles, Lindsay Lohan attended the event with her sister walking in the show and her brother Dakota.

“Grownig up, literally any young fashion designer I know has been obsessed with “Clueless”. I mean, Cher is your muse.”  Regarding his Super Bowl experience, he stated, “It felt really full circle.

Hepburn was another inspiration for Siriano’s most recent collection. Hepburn, specifically, at midnight in a rose garden. “Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn,” a TV documentary series she produced with Michael York in the 1990s, served as inspiration for him.

Hepburn travelled the world in the series, stopping at magnificent gardens in the Netherlands, England, France, Italy, Japan, and other countries.

Siriano paid tribute to the series with huge 3D floral embellishments in the colour fuchsia, or as he put it, “orchid purple,” and Japanese-inspired caps in purple check. He presented cheerful yellow in solid and color-blocked styles and blended roses into a swirling black-and-white motif.

A striking scarcely there evening gown in body-hugging, delicate tulle was also shown, along with youthful, feminine little black dresses, more matronly, roomier skirts, and other designs.

Siriano took his flower mission very seriously, sending out a model wearing one of his large hats covered in enormous blossoms and wearing a matching fuchsia pantsuit topped with even larger blossoms.

Wearable? It would require bravery. It might be simpler to wear a long, properly tailored tuxedo coat and matching slacks.

It’s all because of Hepburn’s one and only television programme.

The event was “amazing and fabulous” and “simply incredibly motivating,” according to Siriano.
