January 14, 2013 – Target is partnering with celebrated designer Prabal Gurung to introduce a limited-edition collection of affordable women’s apparel and accessories, including handbags, shoes and jewelry.
Gurung has developed a strong base of fans, from Hollywood’s most-acclaimed to Great Britain’s royalty and beyond. In 2010 Gurung was the recipient of the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award and selected as runner up for the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, he was honored as one of USA Network’s Character Approved Award recipients, named goodwill ambassador of Maiti Nepal, a finalist of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award and was the recipient of the 2011 CFDA Swarovski Award for womenswear. In addition to his upcoming collaboration with Target, Gurung created two pieces- an elegant wool cape and bow-clad clutch- for the much- anticipated Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection, which launched Dec. 1, 2012.
Prabal Gurung for Target was inspired by a tender love story, offering women’s apparel and accessories suitable for all occasions from the initial crush to the first kiss, to everlasting love. Ranging in price from $19.99 to $199.99 for apparel and $12.99 to $39.99 for accessories and shoes, Prabal Gurung for Target will be available February 10, 2013 at all Target stores and Target.com.
