Target ends GO International program
The Cut was wrong in their recent speculation that Target may partner with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent. [Yeah....as if THAT would ever happen!] However, their post was in correct on the count that Target is no longer producing its GO International program.
This is really not that surprising, seeing that last Spring the Bullseye held their GO International Designer Collective - celebrating 5 years of designer collabs by re-issuing a collection of dresses from their previous GO lines. At the time, the 5-year retrospective seemed like a fitting "farewell" for the program, which had included designers such as Thakoon, Erin Fetherston, and Tucker.
As I stated last week, Target will definitely continue their designer collaborations, but they just won't be under the GO International moniker.
