First, mark you calendars for March 13, this Sunday, when Target GO International releases the designer collective collection, a greatest hits of some of the past 10 years of designer collaborations. Remember how you never got that Rodarte dress? Well, here's your chance. The party, held at the Ace Hotel in NYC, was rockin' with Chloe Sevigny, Michelle Trachtenberg, Olivia Munn, Liv Tyler, and Lake Bell coming to check out dresses and listen to Santigold's live performance. Click for the full slideshow — what do you think of Chloe's outfit in particular?
We anxiously anticipated the designer dresses Target would be relaunching to celebrate its five-year anniversary of amazing collaborations — now they're here. OK, they're not ready to shop quite yet — they launch March 13 — but they are here for your previewing pleasure. Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Rodarte, and more are bringing back some of their best-loved little dresses, and if you didn't get the pieces the first time they debuted, this is like a little gift from fashion heaven, especially since they're all priced under $50. Click through to see John Legend's model girlfriend, Christine Teigen, show off the looks, mark your faves, and prepare to shop when they go live in stores and online next month!
Five years ago, Target started collaborating with some of the industry's best — now it's celebrating Target Go International with a fabulous 34-piece collection created by 17 previously featured designers. Luella Bartley, Tara Jarmon, Paul & Joe, Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Libertine, Alice Temperley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon, Tracy Feith, Rodarte, Zac Posen, and Tucker will all contribute fun dresses, available in stores and online March 13 through April 10. While we anxiously wait, here are 10 pieces we hope to see re-created come Spring!
Fresh off the heels of its latest collab with Zac Posen, Target has already tapped two new designers for its next Go International and limited-edition jewelry series. First up is Tucker's Gaby Basora. The print queen — known for drawing influences from National Geographic to candy wrappers — will create a collection for Target's Go International line dropping Sept. 12. You excited?
For jewels, Target chose the magnificent Temple St. Clair. With baubles ranging upward of $30,000 from her namesake line, now is our chance to grab a much cheaper rendition of her ethereal designs. Temple's collection will debut Aug. 29. Both collections will be available at most Target stores and at Target.com.
Gaby Basora, designer of Tucker, and fine jeweler Temple St. Clair will both launch Target lines this fall. Expect charming prints on Basora's signature blouses, and riffs on Temple St. Clair designer Clair Carr's rock crystal and yellow gold amulets.
Tucker will be sold from September 10 through October 17, and Temple St. Clair from August 29 through December 26.

Manhattanites have the chance to shop the Zac Posen for Target collection before everyone else during an open-to-the public shopping event next week.

The 24-hour shopping party will have the entire collection — all priced under $199 — on offer with special performances by The Like and DJs Kid America, The Other Will, and Luisiul. The lineup will be in Target stores nationwide and online April 25.
It's been five months since we heard the exciting news — Jean Paul Gaultier for Target! After much anticipation, the complete look book has landed on our laps. We have to wait until March 7 to take these eclectic pieces home, but now is the time to crush. That striped trench is looking dope to me. You're about to see 20 looks — each with two or three pieces — so you have lots to choose from. Click through for more JPG goodies, including their descriptions and prices.
It was a glorious day when we announced that Rodarte is collaborating with Target. It will be even more exciting on Dec. 20, when the collection debuts. Here's a sneak peek of what's in store for us. Lace and tulle frocks, leopard-print sequin dresses, netted tights, and bow belts all sound fabulous. Even more fabulous is the price range — $10 to $80. Basically, the raw Rodarte aesthetic minus the stinging price tag.

By now, every fashion fan has dipped her wallet into at least one high/low designer collaboration. Take your pick — Target Go International, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Mango, and so on. The latest one, between Liberty of London and Target, will produce a limited-edition collection of fashion and home goods for March 2010. With the amount of high and low partnerships out there, it begs the question: Is the market saturated? Are you over it? On one hand, it's great that the budget conscious can afford designer, but adversely, it's hard to keep up! What do you think?
The next high-end designer to hit Target is New York darling Zac Posen. While Rodarte for Target hits stores and online Dec. 20, we already have the next collab to look forward to. Posen's Go International collection will be at most stores and Target.com April 25 through May 30.
The price point hasn't been disclosed, but it's sure to mirror Target's past ultra-affordable Go collections. Looks like Zac is bent on bringing his designs to the masses — remember, we just announced his lower-priced diffusion line Z Spoke for Saks.
I'm certain Zac's whimsical aesthetic will translate to Target's youthful racks quite seamlessly.
