There has been a lot of speculation after the relative flop of the Target and Neiman Marcus Collection that celebrity collaborations with big box stores would come to an end, or at least slow down a bit. This does not appear to be the case at Target, where they’ve just announced the launch of another celebrity collaboration!
In this latest collab, Target will be pairing with celebrity stylist Kate Young to introduce an exclusive collection of women’s apparel and accessories, including an assortment of special occasion dresses. The limited-edition collection will be available April 14 at all Target stores and Target.com.
Kate Young for Target is modern and versatile, embodying Young’s eye for pushing trends. Known for creating memorable Hollywood moments, Young designed a collection of special occasion dresses for day and evening, as well as standalone separates and accessories that mix and match to create endless ensembles. The collection ranges in price from $29.99 to $89.99 for apparel and $14.99 to $49.99 for jewelry, handbags and shoes.
If you’re like me and had never heard of Kate Young before this post, here’s a bit about her: Young began her career at Vogue magazine. After spending time assisting Anna Wintour and styling the first cover of Teen Vogue, she transitioned into one of the most sought-after stylists in the fashion industry. Her clientele includes Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and more. In addition to celebrity styling, Young consults for various labels and often styles runway shows for designers such as Jason Wu, Derek Lam, Nina Ricci, Peter Som, Yigal Azrouël and Vena Cava. No stranger to Target, Young has styled a number of the brand’s campaigns, such as Jason Wu for Target, as well as Target’s New York vertical fashion show in 2005. In 2012, Young topped The Hollywood Reporter’s list of the 25 most powerful stylists, recognizing her ingenuity and expertise in the fashion industry.
Target’s blog, A Bullseye View, released a few sketches from the collection, which is what you see above.
I’ll be sure to share the lookbook as soon as it is released! Based solely on Kate Young’s clients, I’m really excited to see the Kate Young for Target collection! I love the way Natalie, Michelle, and Rachel dress!
