Designer Inspired

Anyone that watched Bravo TV's season 4 of Project Runway had to be blown away by the amazing talent of Christian Siriano, 23. I was a fan from the beginning and excited when he won the show. I think that his designs were not only creative, but technical perfection and fun.

It was recently announced that Mr. Siriano would be joining the likes of designers such as Lela Rose, Alice + Olivia, and Patricia Field (of Sex and the City fame) to design a line of shoes and bags for Payless Shoes. His line is scheduled to debut in Fall 2009 and will range in price from $25-$45.

They say that imitation is the finest form of flattery and let's hope that is the case because after taking a look at the preview of Christian's shoes it's safe to say that they were a bold swagger jack of another Christian's (Louboutin to be precise) black, spiked heel design for Rodarte. I mean, Mr. Siriano didn't even try to downplay the swagger jack.

Christian Siriano for Payless - Runway Samples

Despite being runway samples, I know that Christian's shoe/bag line will be hot and being offered at Payless will ensure great prices.

For any Chicago folks that are interested in checking out some of Christian's clothing designs, they can be found at:
