Anna Sui for Target

September 21, 2009 by

SMUstyle An Anna Sui top for $19.99! Gilt Groupe prices don’t even come close to comparing with Target’s latest alliance with Anna Sui.

The second designer in a series of Target Designer Collaborations, a program that features well-established designers who draw inspiration from a collaborative partner, muse or creative element.

Anna Sui’s style stimulus: Gossip Girl. The Target collection is inspired by our four favorite GG’s – Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams – and their distinctive looks. From glamorous to preppy and punk to artsy – the line has it all. Proving once again, Target’s unprecedented ability to successfully fuse frugality with fashion!

Anna Sui for Target will be available online and at select target stores nationwide until October 17.

SMUstyleFNOReady. Set. Mark your planner! For tomorrow that is. Fashion’s Night Out is here! After helping plan the event this summer at Vogue, I personally could not be more thrilled to embark on this epic shopping journey in my home state of Texas. Vogue has paired up with New York and Company to plan the ultimate worldwide shopping excursion. Cities across the nation and countries around the globe are all taking part in the one night only, late night shopping extravaganza. Flagships, tiny boutiques, massive department stores, young designers, mainstream chains, and niche luxury names alike are keeping their doors open late on Thursday.

NorthPark Center and the Dallas Film Society are hosting a special screening of the film Valentino: The Last Emperor at Cibus in NorthPark’s CenterPark at 7pm with a Q&A with Director Matt Tyrnauer. While Neiman Marcus, is doing it big with a full-range of events including the life-size version of FASHION RULES, the world’s very first fashion board game. Stop by Intermix and grab a free $50 gift card and sip champagne while trying on an Herve Leger by Max Azria bandage dress with some Stella heels! Shop ’til you drop or ’til the doors close at 11pm, but don’t forget to pick up an official Fashion’s Night Out designer T-shirt and 40% of the proceeds will be donated to the National September 11 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center.
