Christian Siriano for Payless


Christian Siriano, the FIERCE winner of the fourth season of Project Runway is giving us access to style for less moolah.  Last December, Siriano announced his collaboration with Payless and upcoming plans to distribute a shoe and handbag line for fall 2009.  The collection features Egyptian inspired footwear and accessories with spikes, chains and cone-shaped heels.  The price range is $25-$45 for the items which could be considered steep for Payless but still affordable compared to other fashion retailers.
