Target GO International Designer Collective Look Book (Part I)

This spring, Target is celebrating the five-year anniversary of its GO International program with a collection that features 34 dresses from 17 past GO International designers. Ranging in price from $24.99 to $44.99, the GO International Designer Collective will be available March 13 through April 10, 2011 at most Target stores and

The limited-edition collective features dresses from Luella Bartley, Tara Jarmon, Paul & Joe (by Sophie Albou), Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler (by Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez), Libertine (by Johnson Hartig), Alice Temperley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk (by Milla Jovovich and Carmen Hawk), Rogan (by Rogan Gregory), Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon (by Thakoon Panichgul), Tracy Feith, Rodarte (by Laura and Kate Mulleavy), Zac Posen and Tucker (by Gaby Basora).

It's nice to see Target's first "retrospective." Budget fashion has come so far. (Can you believe it's been five years?!) Wonder where GO will go next...

Since there are 34 images, I'm breaking this lookbook into two posts so it won't take forever to load. Click here for Part 2!

I stupidly bought the floral Thakoon dress when it was first out, and I literally could NOT figure out how to put it on. I don't even know why I bought it! Every time I tried it on at home, I gave up because I simply could not figure out how the straps and ties went.
So, just a word of caution to those who are considering it!

underwhelming collection. Maybe even their creative minds went mass production? the supposed signature look of the designer is not as evident. hoping for a better set.

Nothing very special... But I do like the shoes! I wonder if they are selling the oxfords in store.
