On March 13, Target released a collection of 34 dresses from past designer collaborations. Target's Go International Designer Collective celebrates the 5th anniversary of the cutting edge series, which I have covered religiously for the past four years along with scores of other fashion bloggers. As I explored the selection of dresses at my store and tried them on, I felt a wave of nostalgia. It was like seeing old friends. I couldn't help but feel giddy as I hauled armfuls of dresses bearing labels marked Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, Rodarte and Alice Temperley into the bright orange fitting rooms. Yes, a part of me was mindful of the quality, the polyester fibers, the erratic sizing (note that I was unable to zip up most of the dresses I tried on), but it didn't matter. This was masstige at its finest and I was happy to be a part of it (even if only as a consumer). I purchased the black lace-print Rodarte dress and photographed the rest for your "real life" reference. If you have specific questions about any of the dresses, let me know and I'll do my best to answer.
