Actress Kerry Washington has teamed up with costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited to launch a new clothing line inspired by the Shonda Rhimes series ‘Scandal’.
The fans of the ABC series will be able to purchase the fashion of Olivia Pope (played by Washington) in this fall, reported Ace Showbiz. “People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show,” she said.
The collection will feature Olivia’s signature outfits, including wide-leg trousers, chic blouses and signature outerwear.
Washington, 38, said she was involved with Lyn and The Limited’s head of design Elliot Staples right from the scratch. “It’s been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people,” she added.
The actress, who gave birth to her first daughter Isabella in April, said that the collection would be original and not inspired by any other designer. “We weren’t inspired by any designers in particular because they are all original pieces that are authentic to the character and the world of the show,” she added.
