Happy birthday, Christian Siriano! The fashion designer, who rose to fame following his 2008 Project Runway win, turns 29 today. Not only has Siriano conquered the runways with his eponymous collections, but the established designer has delved into other realms as well, most recently launching his first-ever fragrance.

So, does the designer ever feel nervous about debuting his collections at fashion shows? "Totally, yeah!" he exclusively reveals to InStyle. "Always, because you’re putting yourself out there as an artist, and the clothes as well, and you never know if everything is going to look good on the girls, and it definitely is a lot of work. But I love doing it, and I think if I didn't love doing it, I wouldn't be – you have to love it! This business is hard, so you really do."
