Anna Sui to Do Gossip Girl–Inspired Target Collection

Anna Sui to create Gossip Girl inspired collection for TargetFashion designer Anna Sui has been tapped to do a collection for Target as part of its Designer Collaboration series, which will hit 250 select Target stores September 13 and run through October 17. According to The Cut, Anna Sui's collection will be inspired by the four ladies of Gossip Girl: Blair, Serena, Jenny, and Vanessa.

"When I was in Asia last year, all the young girls kept asking me about the different locations in New York City where the characters from ‘Gossip Girl’ live," Sui told WWD. Expect to see materials like metallic jacquard, herringbone, silk, and chiffon with tulle, lace, and sequin detailing crop up in this collection.

I have faith that Anna Sui's collection will outshine Alexander McQueen, who I feel didn't really take budget-shoppers seriously, and who seriously underestimated his American fans. I love Sui's design sensibility so Gossip Girl or not, I think she will work hard to give us ladies the cheap fashion thrills we so deserve. Pleeease let this be good!

Thanks to reader Alison for the tip!
how exciting! i bought one of her dresses she did for anthropologie a while ago and it's still one of my favorites today!

Do you have a list of stores? I doubt it will come to my Target, but maybe it will come to one in nearby Memphis.
