NEW YORK, Feb 16, 2011 / FW/ — A venue filled to capacity, a front row that was a good mixture of editors, buyers and executives from Payless Shoe Source, Christian Siriano continues to be the most successful alumni of Project Runway.

Except for another one, other winners of Project Runway are dim memories to the fashion set; yet Christian Siriano maintains a high profile, proving that he is not a flash in the pan.

Proposing cocktail dresses, gowns and tuxedos for women this season, Christian Siriano wants his ladies to be red carpet ready any day of the week. Emphasizing that focus, he also designed delightful shoes to go with the outfits. And as his fans already know, those shows will be available at Payless Shoe Source come Fall 2011.
