Victoria’s Secret model who gave up career for Christ launches Bible-based clothing line
Question of the Day
A model who made her money by donning underwear and walking the catwalk, but gave up the career because she wanted to live for Jesus Christ is launching a new clothing line aimed at selling apparel with a pro-Bible, pro-Christian message.
Kylie Bisutti left her Victoria's Secret gig for spiritual reasons years ago, to much media attention. And now, she's got God Inspired Fashion, a company that touts itself as selling "a new style of Christian clothing" for those of all ages, The Blaze reported.
"Something I like to do is wear shirts like, 'I love my husband,' or 'I heart my husband.' My husband wears them, I wear them," she said, in The Blaze. "I like wearing Christian shirts that have things about my faith on them, but I never found a clothing line that had denim blazers — things that you can wear to the workplace or to a nice function."
Ms. Bisutti said her aunt raised the idea — but it was God who made it happen.
"God brought it all together," she said, of her retail plans, in The Blaze. "I really thought it would be awesome to have a fashion line that was found on spreading God's word."
Some of the messages her company clothing touts: "Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character," from 1 Corinthians 15:33, and "Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you," from 1 Peter 5:7.
The messages are imprinted on t-shirts, pants and other apparel.
"A lot of my family members really just researched and found verses that they believed would make an impact, ... or give someone hope," she said, in The Blaze.
She said sales have been rocking and that Christians, in particular, have sent in letters of support and thanks — though some atheists object. And while she's been inundated with offers due to her clothing line — even invited to appear on Dancing with the Stars — Ms. Bisutti said she's taking care to avoid doing anything that would disappoint or dismay God.
