Liberace is Back - an American Icon Ripe for a Renaissance

Itís not only the blue hairs that dig Liberace, now itís generations X, Y, Z, gays and straights.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 4, 2005 -- An award-winning Hollywood Costume Designer jumped on the vintage celebrity trendwagon (think: Marilyn, Elvis, Lucy, James Dean) and created, I Love Liberace, headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She cut a deal with Liberaceís estate, dug deep into the photo archives and plucked the most outrageous Liberace images to use on superhip fashion accessories.

ďThe I Love Liberace collection is witty, cheeky, kitschy and definitely funky! We were intent on introducing Liberace to a generation that hadnít yet discovered the entertainer and his inimitable style. There is a broad demographic appeal for this collection; there is that generation that grew up with Liberace and is grateful for the memories, and then there are the more recent generations that seem to fancy the high-camp-thing that Liberace was so good at. Ē explains designer and founder, Karan Feder.

A portion of the proceeds generated from sales of the collection benefit the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts. Liberace established this scholarship fund in 1976 and has since granted over $4 million in individual college art scholarships.

The I Love Liberace collection is currently sold at the Palms Casino Resort in Vegas, the Liberace Museum in Las Vegas and online at www.ILoveLiberace.com.
