Christian Siriano's Post-'Project Runway' Adventures

Tune in, fashion fans: In a one-hour special, Bravo finds out about the fiercer-than-ever antics of a Runway favorite

So "fierce" may have run its course, but the catchphrase of the moment is…well, "having a moment." And Bravo knows that Project Runway's season 4 winner Christian Siriano has been having his share, ever since the hit reality series catapulted him into the fashion industry.

The one-hour documentary special Christian Siriano: Having a Moment (9 p.m. ET) follows one of Project Runway's sassiest (and most talented) designers, filling us in on what he's been up to ever since Heidi Klum crowned him the winner of the 2008 competition. Aside from his high-end clothing collection, which has been picked up by Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, the 24-year-old has also designed a line of shoes and handbags for Payless, cosmetics for Victoria's Secret, and a chic "fashion phone" with the LG Group. Tonight's special shows Siriano outfitting a slew of celebrities (including Tori Spelling) Not bad for a guy who isn't old enough to rent a car in many states!


According to
Crains magazine, "Revenues for Mr. Siriano's company have jumped more than 75% since 2008, to nearly $1.2 million, and he expects a 40% increase this year." Or, as Siriano translates it: "It's literally gonna be the craziest year ever." This is one colorful fashion diva-in-the-making who certainly seems to possess the eye and the skills to back up his gabby rhetoric. Want proof? "In 29 years of teaching, I had never met a design prodigy until I met Christian," says Project Runway's highly respected mentor/host Tim Gunn in the Crains story.

We're guessing this kid's poised for something much bigger than just a moment in the spotlight. As Siriano struts his stuff in the Bravo special, let's see if his work lives up to all the buzz.
