María Carolina Josefina Pacanins y Niño was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1939. She based her luxury clothing line in New York 1980, and dressed luminaries like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. In other words: expect classic, pretty, posh, proper ladylike looks.
Of the dozens of designers who have appeared on Project Runway over the years, only Christian Siriano continues to make headlines. The collection he showed today was dreamy, wearable, imaginative and stunningly gorgeous. Oh. And. He's only 24 years old.
