NEW YORK, Sep 12, 2012/ — For Spring/Summer 2013, designer Christian Siriano was inspired by the “whimsical movement of the ballet, particularly the Dream Ballet as performed by the American Ballet Theatre.”

The collection is an adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the story of love and romance in fairyland told on the catwalk and interpreted via fashion.

Soft brocades, polk-a-dotted cottons, watercolor printed silks, pearls, and metallic linens make up my new collection: a collection that celebrates feminine A-line silhouettes for evening and simplicity for day.
