It was announced today that Christian Siriano will soon marry longtime boyfriend DJ Brad Walsh in what is sure to be the most fiercely fashionable wedding ever seen.
Siriano flashed photos of his and Walsh’s matching engagement bracelets on his Twitter account. But when Siriano tweeted, ‘Yesterday @BradWalsh and I exchanged engagement bracelets,” he wasn’t letting the cat out of the bag too early. Walsh quickly followed with a tweet of his own letting fans know that they told their moms before talking to the internet to announce their good news.
The two have been together for six years. They have lived together since 2010. Their beautifully renovated and, of course, decorated Chelsea apartment has been featured in numerous magazines and blogs. It even served as the locale for the debut of Siriano’s first resort collection.
Brad Walsh, who works as both a musician and a photographer, creates soundtracks for Christian Siriano’s annual New York Fashion Week collections. It’s a long standing tradition dating back to Siriano’s final “Project Runway” collection. You can get your own copy of the soundtrack online here.

Christian Siriano’s flagship store opened in New York City last year and has expanded his line from couture to housewares. The Maryland born designer is said to have an ever growing love of antiques, a passion that is seen in both his apartment and his latest designs. Siriano also designs a line of affordable shoes and handbags for mass retailer Payless.

No word yet on when to expect the wedding. Or if the couple is expecting to use as offbeat a venue as fellow “Project Runway” alum April Johnston, who was married in a historic cemetery. The couple have expressed their gratitude at all the excitement over their impending nuptials on Twitter.
