Designer Christian Siriano dazzled the crowd with a runway show featuring looks from his spring and resort collections and dicussed a wide range of topics, from dressing celebrities for the red carpet to the effects of his Project Runway win on his career, in an on-stage interview with yours truly. 

The fashion theme continued as Merele Yarborough was honored as the 2017 HCC Design Society Fashion Icon and students from the HCC fashion design program showcased their latest creations in the foyer.
