Target Announces Two Holiday Designer Partnerships
Attention Target shoppers!
Hat designer and South African native Albertus Swanepoel entered the fashion world in 2004 and has since been regarded as one of the top milliners in the fashion industry, having collaborated with designers like Carolina Herrera, Alexander Wang and Narcisco Rodriguez. The Albertus Swanepoel for Target collection features 14 colorful women’s hats, each priced at $19.99.
“I’ve enjoyed partnering with Target and translating my hand-crafted designs into a more affordable line,” said Albertus Swanepoel. “The collection is inspired by my South African heritage and features seasonal colors, leopard print and an array of fashionable trims.”
Los Angeles-based designer and former W fashion editor Dana Kellin began designing fine jewelry with her sister Elizabeth in 1994 after and is known for having pioneered the wire-wrapped jewelry trend. The Dana Kellin for Target collection features a variety of delicate necklaces and earrings, ranging in price from $9.99 to $49.99.
“My collection for Target mirrors my distinctive wire-wrapping technique that is seen in my handcrafted jewelry,” said Dana Kellin. “By partnering with Target, I’m able to bring my jewelry to a much wider audience, while maintaining the quality of my designs.”
Both collections will be available beginning Oct. 30, 2011 at most Target stores and Target.com.
