'Pretty Little Liars' costume designer announces clothing line -- EXCLUSIVE

Good news for fans of the fashion on Pretty Little Liars — a clothing line inspired by the teen drama is coming soon.

PLL costume designer Mandi Line played a big role in designing the line, which was developed in partnership with Warner Brothers and apparel brand Aéropostale. “It’s been a dream come true. It’s become such a passion project on both sides. All of us have become like family within the last three or four months,” Line told EW of the collaboration. “I’m so protective of the show and the fans, but the more I work with them, the more I see that they’re really open to everything I’m saying.”

Line wouldn’t share specifics, but the costume designer did reveal that the line will consist of items inspired by each character’s individual style, with pieces priced between $18 and $72. “Aéropostale is very savvy. Their main thing is to combine quality with the right price point,” Line explained. “I really wanted to work with a retailer whose price points were [reasonable]. I wanted kids and parents to be able to afford [the clothes].”

The Pretty Little Liars Collection by Aéropostale will be available nationwide exclusively at the brand’s retail stores and on its website as of January 5 — just in time for the show’s winter premiere two days later on January 7. READ FULL STORY

See the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' lingerie line -- NSFW VIDEO

Good news for Fifty Shades of Grey fans who live in Northern Europe — author E.L. James has designed a line of sexy lingerie.

James has designed a 26-piece collection of bras, panties, stockings, corsets, and nightgowns in collaboration with Swedish clothing chain KappAhl. Priced between  €12.95 ($17.54 US) and €59.95 ($81.18 US), the unmentionables come in various shades of grey (natch), black, and red, and are adorned with lace embellishments.

What was it like for the romance novelist to try her hand at lingerie design? “It has been incredibly exciting and interesting to be involved in the process, from the production of the concept through the design to the final collection,” James says in a press release from the brand. “I have been deeply involved at all stages, and my thoughts and suggestions are clearly visible in the collection’s garments.”

While the collection is currently available at over 360 KappAhl retail locations in Sweden, it’s not sold online and there are no plans to make it available in the United States. Anyone can ogle the line thanks to a (NSFW) video of a Fifty Shades fashion show. Click on to watch.

Gilt City selling CW 'Originals' vampire-inspired blood juice cleanse

The juice cleanse craze has hit a new level. Today, Gilt City began offering a vampire-inspired “Blood Cleanse” tied to the CW network’s new series The Originals.

In anticipation of The Vampire Diaries spinoff, Joulebody created a three-day cleanse that promises to “make you feel like you could live forever,” and “keep you on the prowl morning through the night.”

ABC Family teamed up with the retailer to create a line of apparel and accessories inspired by characters from the network’s three highest-rated series; The FostersSwitched at Birth, and Twisted. “This is definitely [for] a junior consumer,” Disney Consumer Products VP Soo Koo  told Women’s Wear Daily, noting that the average Wet Seal shopper falls on the younger side of ABC Family’s key demographic — females aged 12 to 34. “It is a millennial, lifestyle brand. That age group and the type of girls that shop at Wet Seal are perfect for this concept.”

The debut Crush by ABC Family collection will focus on three popular characters, each with her own distinct style.  READ FULL STORY
