For Fall '13, Christian Siriano is keeping his trademark glamour, but taking it in a decidedly darker direction. Thus, our fashion reporter Allison McNamara went backstage before his show to get all the details. And it looks like the designer is taking us to the Russian opera — think the Mariinsky (née Kirov) Ballet in the 1880s. Siriano opened up about his opera inspiration, what's new (and exciting) about his Fall lineup, how he's grown since Project Runway, and what his favorite red-carpet moments have been so far. Watch it all here!
