Target at World MasterCard Fashion Week


By Sara Duck

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Target Canada's fashion show, as part of World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto – and it was quite the show! Since the beloved brand made its way north of the border, shoppers can’t seem to get enough of its cheap and chic fashion and homewares – we are big fans of the brand at HD&R. Last nights presentation featured European inspired looks for fall and holiday complete with an accordion player to kick off the show. Other trends for the winter season included key silhouettes such as anoraks, bombers and quilted jackets and accessories including knit beanies, hooded infinity scarves and fur trim. The seasonal looks were featured amongst a backdrop of home decor offerings, highlighting Target’s exclusive Threshold home collection. As a grand finale, gold glitter floated from the ceiling as Bullseye, Target’s iconic mascot, led the 42-model ensemble down the runway.
