It’s been five years since Target started “Go International,” a project to collaborate with international designers for Target stores in the USA. The first designers were Luella Bartley and Tara Jarmon and they set the bar pretty high for all that would follow. Over the years we have seen collections from Paul & Joe, Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Libertine, Alice Temerley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chair, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon, Tracy Feith, Rodarte, Zac Posen and most recently a collection from Tucker (still in stores).
Yesterday, Target announced they will launch a collection of 34 dresses, two designs from each of the 17 designers who have worked with Target thus far. The series will be called the Designer Collective and will launch in stores on March 13 2011.
Sadly, there will be no further designs at this time from the accessories guest designers which have included Temple St. Clair, Anna Sheffield, Miss Trish of Capri and most recently Mulberry.
