Mood fabric-thugging and zero internet access for weeks will be totally worth it after your 15-page spread in Elle, just ask season three villain, Jeffrey Sebelia of DTLA-based clothing line Cosa Nostra.

The show’s wildly successful season four winner, Christian Siriano can add lucrative collaborations with major commercial brands like Payless and Puma to sartorial resume.

Not bad for an theatre kid from Annapolis with a penchant for Edwardian costume.
