Project Runway's fierest alum-- Christian Siriano-- debuted his Spring 2011 collection last Thursday as part of New York Fashion Week. While the designs were fabulous as always, the models were also wearing footwear from his Christian Siriano for Payless Spring 2011 line.
The shoes were inspired by "cultural influences from Africa, India and China together into a single design aesthetic" and it's no question that these super-stylish shoes look like works of art. But it does make us wonder if these exact designs will be in stores, because in the past Payless has toned down Christian's designs to make them more mainstream.
Of course, we'll have to wait to see if the original designs will be in stores, as the shoes won't be available until next spring. However, like Siriano's previous collections, they should retail for under $50.
