Next Target Go International Designer - Thakoon

I love a great design at affordable prices. With so many designer collaborations as of late, I don't feel like there is a need to go to buy imitations at fast fashion stores. You can support the designers you love without breaking the bank.

According to WWD, Target has tapped Thakoon Panichgul to design a sportswear collection that launches on Christmas Day.

Thakoon was nominated for the CDFA Swarovski Award for Womenswear this year and has a celebrity following that includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Demi Moore and Rachel Bilson. Although not everyone knows Thakoon, most Americans will probably recognize the dress that Michelle Obama wore during her husband's presidential nomination acceptance speech in August.

Thakoon notes about Target, “They were very easy to work with. They wanted a lot of prints, and I chose silhouettes that have done well in the past.” So perhaps we can expect some of the sorts of fun prints that drove the editors into a frenzy during his Spring 2009 show.
