Anna Sui Fall-Winter 2008-2009
Woohoo! Most exciting news I’ve heard in a long time: fashion designer Anna Sui is going to design a collection for the US retailer Target! She will become the second designer to participate in Target’s Designer Collaboration series. The first designer to be featured in the new Designer Collaborations series was Alexander McQueen.
“I’ve always been a fan of designer partnerships with mass retailers. I think it is a great way to bring fashion to everyone,” Sui, who took inspiration from the four main characters of Gossip Girl for her collection. “It is an exciting challenge to try and interpret my aesthetic into a mass-produced product with a specific international source as the focus.” The collection combines “the elements of art, city, spirit, punk and glamour”.
Anna Sui for Target will be on sale online at www.target.com on September 13 and in about 250 selected US stores. It will be available until October 17.
