New York Fashion Week Exclusive: Christian Siriano's First Sketch

(Christian Siriano)

It's almost here! New York Fashion Week is only eight days away. (PS: Don't forget to check back with us that entire week for exclusive access behind the Lincoln Center tents—we're talking the most gorgeous looks fresh off the runway, backstage beauty trends, and the best in celeb style straight from the front row.)

So to get us in the NYFW spirit, we have a little surprise for you—a never-before-seen sketch of one of our personal favorite New York-based designers, Christian Siriano. Isn't it just gorgeous? So feminine and effortlessly chic. The perfect go-to office outfit if you ask us.

But what inspired this look? "The Island of Women design influenced silhouette's from grass-lined huts, picturesque color-blocked residential streets, stonework and the locally abundant dahlia," Siriano told us. Ooooh—do we smell a hint of what the rest of the collection will look like? Graphic island-inspired wares?  If so, we can't wait!

Don't forget to check back next Saturday, Sept. 7 as we dish on Siriano's latest collection right after his (sure to be showstopping) show. 

And take a look at Siriano's last collection in the gallery below:
