The Houston Galleria got a little more fierce last night when Christian Siriano made an appearance at Payless to promote his new collection. I was lucky enough to spend a few moments with him and talk about his new line, Christian Siriano for Payless, an affordable line of pumps, boots, and flats that start at $23, perfect for the fashionista on a budget!
Siriano was excited when the opportunity arose to work with Payless. “I think every woman should be able to wear fur booties, a great statement shoe, or a great bag. That’s why I really wanted to design for Payless, it’s an easy and great way to be fashion forward, especially at such a great value”. The collection features neutrals, blacks, grays, and purples making it easy to pair up with any outfit, including the faux fur booties. “I designed these with every type of woman in mind, from the fashion forward woman, to that mom coming in with her kid needing some flats.”
Another line that will be available, Christian Siriano for Payless Gold, is inspired by his Fall 2011 New York Fashion week runway show which was inspired by natural influences, so you see shapes and textures from exotic plants and animals giving it that dark, cool and mysterious feel. The Payless Gold line “helps women find that fun and funky shoe that can still be wearable”. The Payless Gold collection consists of six shoe styles that include platform pumps, shooties, ankle boots, and dressy flats, along with two coordinating bags all starting at $40. A great price for getting that runway look.
