Dress Like FLOTUS: Jason Wu to Be the Next Designer for Target Line

Well look who’s going to be at Target! (pronounced “Tarjai” in hood language.) The go-to designer for our FLOTUS, the fashion forward Jason Wu. Wu is known for creating Michelle Obama’s iconic inaugural ball gown, and she has been a fan of Wu’s uber-feminine and creative pieces since her days back in the Chi before President Obama’s presidential campaign really got going. According to reports, the upcoming line at Target will include handbags, scarves, and of course, some pretty fierce apparel. Wu’s inaugural ball gown is said to be the look that launched his career, and now, the designer gets much love from other big name celebrities like Ivana Trump, and Mad Men star January Jones. Wu had this to say to Women’s Wear Daily about his collabo with Target:

“The exciting thing about this limited edition collection of affordable women’s wear and accessories is that it allows me to reach a wider audience and bring my designs to people who may not have been able to purchase them before.”

We have a feeling Wu’s looks are going to be in “hellas” of high demand, and on the same level of must-have madness as Target’s most recent Missoni collaboration. I’m anticipating some gorgeous skirts, and I’m praying for a good, GOOD price. Check it out when the full collection drops for the retail giant in February.

Will you check it out?

    All the white FLOTUS’ had white designers. Black ALWAYS have to prove that we are not racist. She could have chosen a black designer and got them a leg up. smh….

    I am so excited! Harper's Bazaar has an initial sketch of one of the pieces from the collection here:

    Finally a designer I can be interested in. I dress more classic and modest and covering up can cost a pretty penny. I would love to access quality affordable clothes on the cheap. Or at least reasonably priced.
