It has been announced during the New York Fashion Week that LG Mobile Phones and designer Christian Siriano will combine their creative forces.
The partnership called Divas and Designers is a marketing collaboration which Siriano kicked off by designing a special garment inspired by the LG Lotus phone, both of which are being showcased today on the runway at Bryant Park.
"The LG Lotus - like a well-crafted garment - stands out in the crowd by fusing both style and functionality," says Ehtisham Rabbani, corporate vice president for LG Mobile Phones.
Siriano, for his part, adds, "Mobile phones are fashion accessories, and the LG Lotus is sleek, chic, and fabulous!"
Christian Siriano rose to fame following his win in season six of the reality show Project Runway.
The Divas and Designers partnership includes a nationwide program that allows up-and-coming designers to create and submit their own "mood boards" online. The winning board, to be selected by Siriano, will qualify its maker to spend a day with the designer in his New York City studio. The winner will then work with Siriano to co-create an accessory that will be presented at the designer''s show in September 2009.
