Fashion industry, it’s handled.
“Scandal” star Kerry Washington has teamed up with costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited head designer Elliot Staples to develop a new fashion line inspired by the hit ABC drama, the network announced on Wednesday.
The collaboration is the first of its kind between a national retailer, top-rated network TV show, its costume designer and leading lady. It’s also the first Hollywood partnership for The Limited, a specialty apparel retail tailored for women.
The collection consists of tops, pants, jackets and outwear, which will arrive online and in stores on Sept. 22, with prices beginning at $49.
“By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the ‘Scandal’ aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas,” Washington said in a statement. “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.”
