Less than 24 hours after America learned Christina Scarbo (aka Kit Pistol) was the latest Project Runway casualty, the LA based custom clothing designer has announced plans to launch her debut collection.
Eliminated on the January 16th episode, after 8 weeks of
participation on Bravo TV’s hit show Project Runway, Kit Pistol has announced she
will be making available for the first time her accessories to a
larger audience through her website, ShopKitPistol.com. Kit Pistol hair
accessories will also be available at Studio at Fred Segal.
“Working hard off camera
is equally as gratifying,” say Kit. “Project Runway is one of the first big
steps toward a bright future,” she adds. Kit plans on using sales earned
through her accessories collection to fund her first ready-to-wear collection
slated to debut Fall/Winter 2008
Project Runway provides notoriety but
not funding for all the designers, it’s up to them to make the publicity work.
Kit’s response- “buy a bow or pin to finish off your favorite look!” Merging her
Italian education and east LA style, she creates avant-garde street wear for
discerning women. Where the everyday is anything but mundane and women are
empowered to express themselves through dress.
