With Mother’s Day and all the new spring collection debuts having, we decided to highlight two that we know our One Style at a Time readers will want to know more about. Beginning with Designer Christian Siriano, who is not only a visionary but when it comes to designing, it’s clear he knows how to dress not just models and celebrities, but women of ALL sizes. We know him as a previous winner of the show ‘Project Runway’ and of course, his dramatic and luxe designs have been seen on the red carpet worn by many A-list celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez and the list goes on. He has come a long way since his debut collection in 2008 and his designs are some of the most anticipated every season at New York Fashion Week. Elle magazine has called him ‘The New King of Old School Glamour’ and the title is more than deserving. The Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant collection is available in stores as of April 27th. This collection includes ready to wear and evening pieces that range in price from $48.00 to $198.00.
About the collection, Siriano says…“In my opinion, fashion should never be defined by size. Regardless if it’s for red carpet or a day at the office, every woman should feel stylish and comfortable in their clothes. I’m excited about this partnership with Lane Bryant because it allows me the opportunity to showcase my designs on the everyday woman and allow them the opportunity to feel as beautiful and fashionable as possible.” So ladies, if you’re a Lane Bryant shopper you will definitely want to own as many of these spring pieces. Christian Siriano has an eye for design, tailoring and top notch glamour.

Next up, we head on over to Kohls…Spring and summer shopping is always fun with all the bright colors, trends and patterns we see everywhere these days. Perhaps you are pondering on ideas on what to get for Mother’s day. Head on over to Kohls and you will find designer Reed Krakoff, who on April 21st launched his partnership with Kohls department store. Reed’s name may sound familiar since he was formerly the creative director at Coach. This time around his eye for style, functionality and design are available at a price point that ranges from $15 – $129. The designer felt that currently many of the affordable handbag silhouettes in stores looked all too similar. So he seized the opportunity to present his eye for quality and luxury at a price conscious level. So consider visiting Kohls for a closer look at this new collection and you may just have found yourself your next spring/summer handbag or maybe that something worth considering for that special mom.
