Kerry Washington of "Scandal" has teamed with the show's costume designer and the Limited on a capsule collection.


In an exclusive with WWD.com, the actress who gave birth to a cute baby girl Isabella in April, said “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“.


The collection is to be created with the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited’s Head of Design Elliot Staples. It will feature Olivia Pope’s wide-leg trousers, chic blouses and signature outerwear.


With such a busy schedule of ‘fixing’ the affairs of the White House, taking care of new born Isabella and being a red carpet fixture, Kerry was in constant connection with Paolo and Staples to make sure the collection was up to par; as most fans of the show would be unable to afford the actual pieces on the show.


 “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.”


Quite popular within fashion circles, Kerry commented on being inspired by her favourite designers;

“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.

Personally, I have tons of favorite designers. I don’t gravitate toward any one designer because I think of fashion as the costume of the everyday woman. The Armani house was one of the first ones to dress me. Jason Wu is a dear friend of mine, as is Tory Burch. I am a big fan of Alexander Wang.”


Kerry’s character will wear pieces from the Scandal Collection live on the show but she however stated that it will not be the sole source of clothing but  rather one of the various collections that she and Paolo pull from.


The Scandal-inspired line is in sync with The Limited’s multitiered strategy to woo more sophisticated professionals.


The 42-piece collection will be sold in 250 Limited mall stores as well as online with retail prices ranging from $49 to $248 in September.
