The first fashion show Ashley Graham ever opened was Christian Siriano’s last February. One year later, the model closed the designer’s fall ’19 runway presentation in a look fit for a futuristic queen.
During this month’s New York Fashion Week, Graham hit the catwalk for the grand finale at Christian Siriano, wearing a meteor crystal-cascading mesh gown. The see-through look caused gasps from the crowd, which Siriano said was adorned with thousands of crystals. It was paired with crystal peep-toe sandals and matching shimmery headpiece.
He told FN, “It took about a few weeks to work on this gown for Ashley. We put it into work about a month ago, and then when it came back from our embroidery house in India, my team spent about another week hand-beading each stone.”

What makes this gown special is not only its intricate details but that it’s made for a range of sizes, from 2 to 20.
“I made this gown for Ashley to showcase her amazing figure, but I think what’s great about this gown is, so many women could wear this on the carpet in any size,” Siriano explained.
