Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Kylie Bisutti launched a Christian clothing line, called “God Inspired Fashion”. The clothes are less about glam and more about Bible verses, which inspired Bisutti to express her true vision through fabrics and words.
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins”, stays written on a sky blue maxi summer skirt, part of the “God Inspired Fashion”, created by supermodel Kylie Bisutti. The 23-year-old, now soon-to-be a mother, became famous after modeling for Victoria’s Secret swimsuit line in 2009. Now, years later, she had the courage of expressing her own vision when it comes to fashion, bringing into the picture one delicate aspect: religion. And, more specifically, Christianity. Obviously, her line has a precise target: those women and men who believe in God and want to make a religious statement. “I started a clothing line because ever since becoming a Christian in high school, I’ve always wanted to express my faith through fashion”, says Bisutti to Yahoo! Shine.
The “God Inspired Fashion” line includes tanks, tops, jackets, skinny jeans, scarves, and bags for women, men and children. The dominating colors are blue and pink pastels, but also some neon accents – pink and emerald green – and of course, the contrasting black and white. Each item features a verse from the Bible, such as: “For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13), “Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matthew 22:37), or “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline” (Timothy 1:7).
The prices are accessible, with tees starting at $24.99, jeans at $49.99 and jackets priced at $119.99
In May, Bisutti released a memoir – “I’m No Angel” – focused on her experience in the fashion industry, dishing on the pressures she dealt with as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. A spokesperson for the company accused the model of fabricating stories and disputed even her “Angel” status. “In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year”, the rep told NY Daily News before the book release, in late April. In response to the claims, the model told “Shine”: [Victoria’s Secret] repeatedly referred to me as an ‘Angel’ during my time working for the brand.”
