Situated at 252 Elizabeth Street in Nolita, the 1,000-square-foot space was ready for business last week, but it will "officially bow" on September 5, and hold a Fashion's Night Out fête the next day, WWD reports. Siriano told the newspaper that he wants customers to become acquainted with his sportswear and separates, adding, "I didn't want the main focus to be on evening." His offerings (priced from $120 to $2,000) also include clutches and wallets to match his Payless ShoeSource collection. He plans to add jewelry and home items ... and eventually open more stores, which he might not describe as "fierce," either. Baby's all grown up!
