Target “Wu’s” Frugalistas!

Strange but true, there isn’t a single item in Jason Wu’s limited-edition collection for Target that I don’t love.

Every single piece is screaming “Buy me,” which is probably what the creators intended!

It’s a completely must-have collection stamped with Wu’s classic-meets-cool signature.

31 Rising Fashion Design Icons Make Cut

The Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Board of Directors has added 31 new designers to its membership.

The list was ratified on July 14 and publicly released on the Council’s web site today.

Among the new privileged group are some well known names.

Lorraine Schwartz, jewelry designer, perhaps further popularized by an envied mention on a Jay-Z record, makes the cut.

The Council also welcomes Jason Wu, who caught the First Lady’s attention and set the fashion world abuzz during Inauguration festivities.

The Olsen twins for their ELIZABETH & JAMES, and THE ROW, earn a place among the chosen few, with the CFDA release also noting their business’ expansion to include menswear–a project which will debut in the Fall.

Erin Fetherston, selected to design a Go International line for Target in 2007, Alexander Wang, and Marcella and Johan Lindeberg of William Rast fame, are other names which jump off the page.
