Racked NY posts a round-up of first impressions from Christian Siriano's first non-Project Runway-related New York Fashion Week show from WWD, AP and Newsday video in which Tim Gunn says "He really is the next great American fashion designer. I'm confident. Holla at your boy!" Gotta love Tim. And below, more from the Project Runway judges:
From Nina: “Not everybody at his age could pull this together so effortlessly. I am blown away and proud and excited and happy—I feel like a doting mother." [Defamer]
From Heidi: “I’m so proud of him. I’m really excited to be here. A lot of the time, I’m not here when the designers have fashion shows. It’s not that I like him more than others, it just worked out this way. It looks like a serious fashion show! I am impressed.” [FWD]
