New York, NY (July 31, 2012) – Luxury designer, Christian Siriano announced today the opening of his first 1000-square foot concept store in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. The store, which opened its doors for a soft launch in July, will officially open on September 5th.

Now, for the first time ever, his collections will be available to consumers in his very own unique retail store in New York City where the line collection is designed, created and manufactured.
“I’m very excited to open my first retail concept store on Elizabeth Street in SoHo, a neighborhood which has always been a high end shopping destination. I have always wanted to open a space where my customers can shop exclusive pieces curated by me and my team. The store is a great showcase for the collection to be seen each season, and I’m hoping this will be the first of many Christian Siriano retail locations!”
