Christian Siriano Weathers the Economy With New Payless Deal

Tina Fey

Christian Siriano just inked a deal to design a line for Payless. The line will debut during New York Fashion Week and be sold in 400 Payless stores across the country. The New York Post suggests that this is another chapter in his book on Selling Out. He has, after all, designed a scarf to hold a cell phone and rakes in $10,000 a pop for appearances at events. But we think a deal to design things the average fashionista can wear is a great thing for someone like Christian. The Post reports:

“I have a pretty huge fan base, not to toot my own horn,” Siriano said. “But a lot of those are ‘Project Runway’ watchers and they’re young. They’re in school and aspiring to be artistic and they can’t afford my clothes.”
