City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan

Yearning for Fashion Week already? I can tell you that I certainly am. Fortunately, this Wednesday night, August 18th, we both can get our fix. One of my favorite go-to stores for cutting-edge, yet always affordable, fashion, Target, will be joining together with the ultra-posh Standard Hotel to present to you this one-of-a-kind event, the Target Kaleidoscopic Fashion Spectacular.

Happening live at 9am, this event is sure to blow you away. In the windows of 155 rooms, on the South faà§ade of The Standard, 66 dancers dressed in the latest Target fall styles will perform, along with dazzling lighting patterns, to original music. A simultaneous fashion presentation will take place on the street with models wearing 25 of the hottest looks from the fall Target collection on a nine-room stage that will replicate the windows of the hotel.

The Target Kaleidoscopic Fashion Spectacular will feature looks from men’s and women’s collections from Target brands Mossimo™ , Merona™, Converse™ One Star™, Xhilaration™, Pure Energy and Liz Lange for Target™ , in addition to (everyone’s favorite!) accessories. Following the show, you will be able to pre-order select fall fashions on Target.com, beating the crowds of fashionistas in the store.

This event is FREE and should not be missed by any fashion lover! Get there early to grab yourself a prime spot or see the show from various viewing parties that will be taking place on Little W 12th Street between Washington Street and 10th Ave. Shop afterwards via blackberry with a cocktail in hand!

Don’t live in New York City? Don’t pout! You can see the event via a live-streaming broadcast at Target’s Facebook page: http://apps.facebook.com/targetspectacular/.
