Thursday was one of those NYC days that was just jam packed with events and parties. One of the things I was most looking forward to was the press preview of the Zac Posen for Target Shopping Party! When I first heard about the event, I was ecstatic– It meant I didn’t have to stay up until 3am next weekend waiting to place an order! Really though, it’s always amazing to see Target’s designer collaborations in person, a feat which isn’t always easy in New York City. If you have an opportunity in the next 24 hours to do the same, TAKE IT.
I was really impressed with the Zac Posen line. You might hear me gush over Target a lot on this blog (IMO they really can do no wrong), but seriously this collection blew me away. The quality and selection in this collection was phenomenal. And even better, the sizing seemed to run more “normal” than some of the collections of the past. Only the pink animal print dress seemed to run small, from what I saw.
My favorite dress in the collection!
The Like performed while buyers snatched up their favorite pieces.
The pieces that impressed me most:
The Brocade Floral Dress*
The Red Leather & Suede Jacket
The Navy and Black Snap Dress*
Ruffled Red Prom Dress
* The 2 dresses I bought.
This dress is amazing:
I went right when the event started, at 7. But I only had a short time before I had to head to a second event, so I missed Zac, Claire Danes, and Selma Blair. Everything looked amazing though, and the way it was presented was beautiful. I hear it most sizes quickly sold out during the preview! It looked like a lot of stock was still available, hidden in a back room for the public opening. But if you want to shop early, I suggest going asap!
I shot a quick video of some of the mannequins wearing the collection, and The Like doing their sound check:
When I left at 8pm, there were already two girls in line:
Hope you two got everything you wanted!
Both of the dresses I got are gorgeous, but this is my favorite Target dress ever:
Close up detail of my brocade dress. Everyone I’ve shown it to thinks it’s a $350+ dress!
If you went, what did you get? What do you plan on buying next week?
