“Target is synonymous with great design, and with the launch of AVA & VIV, we’re stepping up our fashion game for our Plus-size guests,” said Stacia Andersen, senior vice president, merchandising, apparel and accessories, Target. “From stylish original prints to the attention to detail and fit, this line is meant to impress and we can’t wait to share it with our guests.”
In anticipation of the launch, Target invited top fashion bloggers Nicolette Mason, Chastity Garner and Gabi Gregg (shown here) to its headquarters in Minneapolis to preview the line. Not only did they get a sneak peek of AVA & VIV, these trend-setting gals had a chance to offer their stylish two cents on designs that were in progress for the fall. If Chastity's name sounds familiar, it's because she's the blogger who publicly boycotted Target's Altuzarra collection when it failed to include plus sizing. More recently, she shared her support of the decision to include larger sizes in the brand's Lilly Pulitzer collaboration.
