New York Fashion Week may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look to the top designers for fashion tips. Christian Siriano, the charismatic fourth-season winner of Project Runway, is taking his passion to the masses with the new book, Fierce Style: How to Be Your Most Fabulous Self, in stores this week. “It’s very light-hearted, very kitschy, very fashion. It’s for that younger aspiring artist and fan,” says the 23-year-old Maryland native, who got Runway mentor Tim Gunn to write the foreward for his book. As for being a published author, Siriano says, “it’s a lot of people’s dream and aspiration. I didn’t take it so seriously – it’s not a novel.” He’s currently on a book tour and has stops coming up in New York, California, Minnesota and Washington, D.C. “I’ll have more of a chance to see the people and see what their lifestyle is like and definitely get a little fashion trend about where everyone shops and how they dress,” Siriano says. You can check out some exclusive fall fashion tips from him, current Project Runway contestant Christopher Straub and other Runway alums here.
