In today's economic downfall, when everyone is thinking about the economy, is expensive high fashion the answer or is it about having great style at an affordable price? For me it's all about great style at a great price. Being able to give a FABULOUS look for less is the new thing. Now don't get me wrong my love for designer duds is still in tact. However, soon there will be no middle retailers(Express,Banana Republic etc); just LUXURY(Barneys, Bergdorfs, Saks etc...) and MODERATE(Target...). Target is a good example. Lately there have been an endless number of high fashion designers flocking to the retailer to design a collection. Designers like Isaac Mizrahi, Thakoon, and now Alexander McQueen. The Alexander McQueen for Target collection is said to resemble the aesthetic of his younger McQ line, seen left. Drawing inspiration from punk singer, Leila Moss, from The Duke Spirit, McQueen's collection will be adorned with edgy details such as studs and tattoo-print fabrics. Sweaters, skinny jeans, dresses, trench coats, swimwear, and blazers will be made in muted colors with bright accents. Squirming with excitement? The highly touted collection will debut in March. So now girls on a budget can have fashionable frocks without going broke. Target is on the right track; setting themselve apart by capitalizing on the market for GREAT STYLE without breaking the bank.
