Stylist to Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams will bring red carpet look to the masses with eveni
Target has announced that Kate Young, stylist to the likes of Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams, will launch a budget collection this spring. The Target line will focus on evening-wear, and early sketches show flowing cream evening gowns and Peter Pan collar tea dresses.
The collection will make her coveted red carpet style available and affordable, with semi-formal and special occasion dresses ranging in price from $29.99 to $89.99. The collection will also include jewelry, handbags and shoes, available on the Target website only, priced between $14.99 and $49.99.
Said Ms Young in a press release: ‘I’ve been working with Target for a number of years as a stylist, so having the chance to design my own collection with a brand I already know and love is like a dream come true.’
Ms Young, who is married to music executive Keith Abrahamsson, also styles red carpet favorites including Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz. Though she has years of experience styling celebrities with other designers' creations, this will be the first time she can call the looks her own.
'With this collection, I wanted to design standout pieces that allow women to experiment with fashion and create their own red carpet moments,' she said in an interview with ABC News.
In a statement to WWD, a Target Corp. spokesman explains, ‘As [designer collaborations] have become more common, our partnerships have taken on many different shapes.’
Said Ms Young in an interview with Refinery 29: 'As a stylist, I wanted to create a collection that allows and encourages all women to create their own red carpet moments, no matter the occasion.'
The celebrity stylist’s collection will hit stores and Target.com on April 14.
