With his Target Go International collection, Zac Posen aims to please young girls of all sartorial leanings by designing flirty party dresses and sleek tuxedos for under $100. The thoughtful lineup — one standout cocktail dress features detachable ruffles and can be worn multiple ways — is 100 percent Posen at affordable price points.
In his quest to keep the collection relevant, the New York-based designer charted new territory with the mass retailer by giving an alternative evening wear choice to its young shoppers — a menswear-style tuxedo.
“Lesbian proms have been such a big thing in the news lately,” Posen said of the decision to feature the YSL-esque tux. “Rather than create a fake subculture, I wanted to address things that are actually happening. It’s a kick-ass girl who can wear a tuxedo to prom! Don’t be afraid of drama.”
