>> It was a crazy rumor in August, and now it's crazily true. Target has been courting Alexander McQueen — and he's obliged. In March, the mass retailer is launching a new fashion initiative, Designer Collaborations, which sounds very similar to what H&M does every holiday season — bring well-established designers in to do clothes at Target prices.
First up? Alexander McQueen, who will be drawing from his McQ collection — not McQueen mainline — for his limited-run McQ Alexander McQueen for Target line, in stores March 1 through April 11, with rock'n'roll influence, studs, and tattoo-print fabrics all in mind. Go International will still be continuing, because it focuses on emerging designers, and additional Designer Collaborations are said to be in the pipeline.
