Target Australia on Monday announced its latest Designer for Target collaborator, Jean Paul Gaultier, will attend its Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival runway show on Wednesday 9 March, 2016.
The designer will also visit the Target Bourke Street Melbourne store on Thursday 10 March, 2016 to celebrate the arrival of the collection. The Range also launches online and in other selected stores nationally on the same date.
“Each and every time I visit Australia, I fall in love with the local culture and attitude towards fashion, and continually find inspiration in my surroundings. The laid-back street-style and design ethos of Australians is refreshing -- I love that there are fewer rules, and Melburnians in particular embrace diversity," Gaultier said.
“I’m so proud of this collaboration and I’m excited to see Australia’s reaction. Target is all about providing quality fashion that’s accessible and it’s rewarding for me to make my designs and fashion ethos accessible to so many more consumers.”
The Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection is the latest partnership to be announced in the retailer’s ‘Designers for Target’ program, following the likes Dion Lee, Stella McCartney and Missoni.
