OMG!

I never thought I’d say this.

But I might be adding Payless to the list of one of the first places I shop in the fall.

That’s because Payless ShoeSource has signed a deal with Christian Siriano!

Yep! You heard me right!

The season four Project Runway winner will create the Christian Siriano for Payless designer label — his first-ever footwear and handbag collection.

The new collection will be unveiled at Siriano’s runway show at New York Fashion Week next February.

It will be exclusively available in Payless stores and Payless.com in fall ’09.

The deal covers multi-season collections including footwear and handbags for women. Price points are expected to be in the $25 – $45 range.

Yaaay, Christian!

High net-worth female consumers rated Christian Louboutin the most prestigious women’s luxury shoe brand in the 2008 Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI) survey.
