Christian Siriano Co. Countersues
I Killed Our Deal ‘Cause …
‘Just Love’ Dresses Were Just Crap!

Christian Siriano is firing back at a retailer that says he pulled the plug early on a licensing deal they had with him, calling a batch of their clothes low quality and unapproved.
The “Project Runway” winner’s company filed its own lawsuit against M&A Imports — which owns the Just Love brand — saying they’re actually the ones who breached their contract … by selling crappy dresses with his name on it that they allegedly didn’t run by him first.
In the docs, Siriano says he only agreed to let M&A use his ‘Christian Siriano’ brand if they got his approval on pre-production samples of garb they planned to sell — but says they failed to do so last summer, yet still moved forward with an inferior product.
Christian says the dresses were basically crap — made of cheap fabric with major stitching, hemming and packaging issues … which he was embarrassed to endorse with his name.
He claims he had every right to end their OG contract, adding M&A never paid him for ‘Christian Siriano’ clothes they’re still selling. He’s asking for at least a mil in damages.
