Christian Siriano is gearing up for this year’s Design Cares runway show to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by collaborating with an unexpected design partner. The Project Runway star has created a stunning gown based on a design by eight-year-old Micah, a St. Jude success story, whose stage IV spinal cancer was knocked into remission when she was just a baby. Micha dreams of being a designer when she grows up — and Siriano is giving her the fiercest of head starts by transforming her sketch into a runway reality. Along with Christian, designers including Carolina Herrera, Catherine Malandrino, Diane Von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Marc Jacobs are contributing their own exclusive gowns, which will walk down the catwalk at a special presentation on April 30th, before being auctioned off at the end of the evening. All proceeds will go toward helping the hospital with its mission of treating sick children in need of care. Click here to learn more about this year’s Design Cares.
