- After revealing her MS diagnosis, Selma Blair walked the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscars party with a cane.
- In her recent interview with Vanity Fair, Blair expressed her desire to create an accessible fashion line "with someone like Christian Siriano."
- Fashion designer Siriano has now responded to Blair's idea.
In her candid interview with Vanity Fair, Blair lamented the lack of accessible, comfortable and fashionable clothing for individuals with chronic illnesses and disabilities. The actress name-dropped her friend, designer Christian Siriano, as her dream collaborator on an accessible fashion. And now, Siriano has responded in a new interview with People.
In many ways, Siriano sounds like the perfect fit for Blair's project, as his line has always been dedicated to making inclusive fashion for everyone. And according to Siriano, the collaboration isn't completely out of the question, as he tells People, "Selma and I talked about it at dinner. What’s happening with her is so unreal, so I was like, 'Well maybe this is something that is needed in a way,' so we'll see. I don't know yet but maybe."
As Blair told Vanity Fair, "I would like to partner with someone like Christian Siriano on a line for everyone-not just people who necessarily need adaptive clothing, but for those who want comfort, too. It can still be chic. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice style. Like, let’s get elastic waistbands to look a little bit better."
The Hellboy actress added, "I really feel like people with disabilities are invisible to a lot of people. Because they’re uncomfortable, or don’t have the energy to dress up, don’t want to be seen." If Siriano and Blair do decide to work together, people living with chronic illnesses and disabilities could finally have access to fashion that works for them.
