Making it as a fashion designer is no small feat, but Project Runway winner Christian Siriano seems to be doing well for himself. Siriano, who's already staged his own runway show, has just scored a collaboration deal with Payless for a line of shoes and handbags to debut in a few months. "Siriano's Payless line, which will debut at New York Fashion Week in February, will be sold at about 400 - or about one-tenth - of Payless stores across the US, Payless CEO LuAnn Via said. 'If it's fabulous, we could certainly expand it,' Via said."
