Christian Siriano is launching a maternity collection. And good morning! Though he’s showing his regular collection on September 11 during Fashion Week, he’s already got a full maternity line under his belt for spring 2009. Siriano teamed up with his two friends Marta Abrams and Elise Rosemarin, founders of Moody Mamas maternity clothes, to create a collection called Fierce for Moody Mamas by Christian Siriano. Really? Fierce? It already has originality written all over it!
A Moody Mamas rep told us he signed on because he thought it would be great for a gay man to team up with two women who’ve never had a baby to do maternity clothes. Reason enough, we guess! It seems from these sketches of Siriano’s designs the threesome has created some interesting pieces for you baby makers. Already we see tummy-flattering garments like a pleated baby-doll dress and a purple wraparound sweater that could easily give A Pea in the Pod a run for its money. The full line goes up for sale on MoodyMamas.com in the spring of 2009, but in the meantime, you can examine a few more sketches after the jump.
