Christian Siriano's Fall 2017 ready-to-wear show at NYFW made a huge, solidifying statement in today's shaky political climate. From his diverse choice of models, to financial commitment to the ACLU, to outspoken lettering, Siriano's eclectic show proves fashion will not be silenced. Even faces in the front row -- cast members from "Orange is the New Black", Gigi Gorgeous and Alicia Silverstone-- were a component of this show's essence.

Siriano's new collection was inspired by a trip to Fire State Park in Nevada's Valley. "I wanted everyone out there to kind of take 20 minutes to just dream. There is a lot going on in the world, but for a moment you can take yourself out of it," the designer said to Vogue.

Siriano began the collection with deep reds, soft blushes, fur and burgandy. Velvet oranges and reds followed, and overcoats and evening wear flowed after.

For Siriano, evening wear was all about fringe, deep necklines, sheer skirts and puff sleeves. It was the intriguing mixture of different fabrics, patterns and models that put it all together. The model Jasmine Poulton closed the show, sporting a black t-shirt with bold white lettering. "People Are People" it read, rounding out Siriano's clear message.
