Fashion Designer Josh Goot on Target!

Josh Goot | Target | Fashion | Designer | Clothing | Womens | Teens | Girls

Hands up those who thought it was going to be Lisa Ho! Maybe you were wishing for Alex Perry or perhaps Nicola Finetti or Zimmermann! Or may be, following on from Stella McCartney, you had your fingers crossed for another international fashion designer like New York based Marc Jacobs or Kenneth Cole. No, but the fashion pundits including Patty Huntington of The Sydney Morning Herald got it right and as predicted in my April 29 post, Fashion Designer Josh Goot for Target, today in their Press Release Target announced that the Australian and internationally acclaimed, award wining fashion designer label Josh Goot will be the next fashion designer for the Designers for Target collection following in the footsteps of Stella McCartney.

Josh Goot | Target | Fashion | Designer | Clothing | Collection | Womens | Teens | Girls

Now that it has been confirmed that Josh Goot will be the next fashion designer for the Designers for Target collection, two question spring to my mind. Firstly, what will the collection look like, and secondly, will this womens designer clothing collection be hot!

What will the Josh Goot for Target Collection Look Like?

So now what will the Josh Goot for Target collection look like? I spoke about this in my post Fashion Designer Josh Goot for Target on April 29 when I suggested that it will more than likely be based on the same predominantly grey marl signature shades as in previous Josh Goot collections. I mentioned that the clue to what a Josh Goot for Target collection would look like could be found in the Josh Goot collection showcased in Australian Fashion Week and on this point, in his comments during an interview with Rebekah van Druten of the ABC News: Arts & Entertainment site, "The Fashion End" Josh Goot said that "we can expect a lot of bright, fresh, young, sexy clothing. You can expect some new silhouettes from the brand, some new fabric and some new lines."

Josh Goot | Target | Fashion | Designer | Clothing | Womens | Teens | Girls

This has now been confirmed in Target's Press Release which states that "the slick modern womens wear line combines smart tailoring, great basics and sporty dresses. Goot offers signature shades of grey marl and silver, with a more sophisticated navy and black along with splashes of bright green and blue. This range takes inspiration from Josh Goot's trademark style, including key items from his current range. It features racer back tanks, leggings, pencil skirts, cardigans and blazers, easy dresses for everyday and evening, as well as the famous jersey trench coat." In the Press Release Josh Goot is quoted as saying that "we have utilised high quality blended knits and popular finishes - the result is a fresh and current look that lets the wearer feel cool and modern." And it mentions that the entire range for Target comprises Australian Merino Wool. All this sounds exciting so I can't wait to see the Josh Goot, Designers for Target collection.

Josh Goot | Target | Fashion | Designer | Clothing | Womens | Teens | Girls

Will the Josh Goot for Target Collection be Hot?

Josh Goot's designs are currently available through leading retailers including Colette in Paris, Browns Focus in London, Henri Bendel in New York and Neiman Marcus in Los Angeles. These are high end boutiques so you can imagine the prices! But soon the Josh Goot label will be available in a Target store near you.

As Josh Goot himself said when asked by Rebekah van Druten of the ABC News: Arts & Entertainment site, "The Shallow End" whether he would consider creating a collection for chain stores, "I think it's great to give a wider audience access to great clothes and great designs. I think it's really important. I think it's one of the more exciting initiatives or developments in global fashion this millennium."

Josh Goot | Target | Fashion | Designer | Clothing | Womens | Teens | Girls

The other question for me is, will the not so well known Josh Goot create the same mania and hysteria that Stella McCartney did with her womens designer clothing collection for Target ? Will Target shelves around the country be stripped bare within minutes of the arrival of the Josh Goot collection?

Well we don't have to wait too long to find out the answer to this question as the Josh Goot for Target collection, will be available in selected Target stores on June 19. Given that the clothes in the designer collection will be priced between $59.99 and $129.99 (Racer Back Tank $59.99, Pencil Skirt $59.99, Jersey Dresses $89.99, Tailored Jacket $99.99, Hooded Jacket $129.99, Trenchcoat $129.99), the Josh Goot collection for Target will be hot! Tarjay away :)

The Celebrity Designer Handbag Auction

Here's a roundup on the online Celebrity Handbag fundraising auction which ended on May 9, 2007 11:59 PM EDT. I wrote about this celebrity designer handbag event in the post Want to Own a Celebrity Designer Handbag? in which I described how celebrities and models generously donated their designer handbags for the online auction by the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) to help fund digestive disease research.

Donatella | Versace | Designer | Fashion | Handbag | Womens

At the top end of town is the nothing short of stunning, yellow patent leather Versace handbag shown here and once owned and will probably always be missed and loved by Donatella Versace, the Vice President & Creative Director of The Versace Group. This designer handbag fetched a price of $716!!! I think that that's an amazing buy for such a gorgeous and priceless Versace designer handbag. It's a real stunner and is rich with detail. Just click on the image to see what I mean. You'll quickly see the amazing detail on this yellow patent leather, Italian designer handbag sporting that oh so desirable gold metal plaque with the signature Versace Medusa. There were 5 bids made by 3 bidders and of all the handbags auctioned, at $716 this designer handbag from Ms. Versace's personal collection, fetched the highest closing bid.

Gucci | Designer | Fashion | Handbag | Mariska Hargitay

Next, the sophisticated black Gucci designer handbag, an evening handbag once owned by Emmy award winning actress, Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order") was snapped up at a closing bid of $550. From the bidding history it is clear that while this designer handbag didn't fetch the highest price of all bags auctioned, it generated the toughest competition with only two bidders thrashing it out over 22 bids! I asked myself, was it the Gucci handbag or was it the fact that these two bidders were Mariska Hargitay or "Law & Order" die-hards? I would just love to interview the two bidders on this! It really is a gorgoeus Gucci handbag. The silver push clasp with a small raised Gucci logo on the front elegantly contrasts with the black watered silk. Polished silver U hooks, including one that bears the Gucci name, hold the half-inch wide single strap in place. The zippered closure opens to a soft silk interior featuring a single open pocket. This Mariska Hargitay once owned bag will forever be a talking point, I'm sure!

Jil Sander | Designer | Fashion | Handbag

The golden tan leather, "Jil Sander" handbag previously owned by Emmy winning comedienne, Vicki Lawrence ("The Carol Burnett Show") at $466, fetched the next top closing bid. Interstingly though there was only one bidder for this celebrity handbag and was snapped up at the opening bid of $466. It's quite a large bag (18" x 11.5") with lots of room for meetings or travel. The "Jil Sander" name is embedded on the front, near the bottom of one of the front handles and again inside under the flap closure. Cream colored top stitching provides accents on the sides and where the rounded double handles meet the base. The satin interior is divided into three compartments: a center section with a magnetic snap closure and two open outer sections, one with a zippered security pocket and another with a smaller oblong pocket that closes with a leather, Velcro-backed flap.

Lambertson Truex | Designer | Fashion | Handbag | Mariska Hargitay

Next, the luxurious fine leather Lambertson Truex designer handbag once again once owned by Emmy award winning actress, Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order"). The zippered top closure opens to a roomy interior lined in the signature Lambertson Truex luxurious azure blue suede lining. The bag features two flat side pockets that snap shut for secure storage and quick access. A zippered side compartment provides functional organizational features such as a credit card holder, open flat pocket, and cell phone holder. Such features make it easy to organize contents. This soft, structured handbag was faught over by 3 bidders in 4 bids and was finally snapped up at $450.

Prada | Designer | Fashion | Handbag | Deborah Roberts

One of my personal favorites, is the soft black leather Prada handbag. This designer handbag was once owned by ABC News Correspondent, Deborah Roberts. The front and back of the bag fold down for closure, secured by a Prada engraved silver metal clasp. Rounded double straps are attached to the body of the bag with square metal grommets. Expandable sides allow for extra storage. The inside cloth lining features the Prada monogram and a zippered multi-use compartment. Two bidders worked through 6 bids until it was finally sold at $425.

Liz Claiborne | Designer | Fashion | Handbag | Jenna Fischer

Next, and the final bag that I'll mention here is the off-white canvas Liz Claiborne handbag once owned and adored by the actress, Jenna Fischer ("The Office"). As you can see from the picture, it's an elegant, sophisticated looking designer handbag with brown tonings and brushed bronze hardware. This bag attracted 30 bids by 9 different bidders, the largest number of bids and bidders for all handbags auctioned. So this Liz Claiborne handbag certainly created a lot of interest.

Summing up, there are 16 fashionistas out there smiling no doubt from cheek-to-cheek with the 20 Celebrity Handbags between them :) One designer handbag and/or celebrity lover snapped up 3 of them! Two others each have two!

So what's interesting from this Celebrity Handbag auction, is the correlation, if any, between the bidding price or interest generated in the handbags from the perspective of the designer labels and the previous celebrity ownership associated with them. In other words, was the decision to bid on these celebrity designer handbags based primarily on the handbags themselves (albeit used but in perfect condition) and a wish to get them at a great price? Or was it driven by the desire of owning a handbag actually once owned by a model or celebrity, an Emmy Award or Academy Award winning actress or a television personality, a persepctive that makes them priceless?

Of course there is another element to why one would bid, and that is, the auction benefits a good cause; this was a fundraising auction by the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders to help fund digestive disease research.

To see the full details of the auction including bidding history, simply visit the Celebrity Handbag Auction.

Australian Fashion Week Roundup - Big names stay away!

Australian | Fashion Week | RAFW | Vogue

Oh how some things make me really mad!!!

I read an article "Big names stay away" while doing some online reading about Australian Fashion Week, recently held in Sydney. The article cites a Sydney fashion label owner, Danny Avidan, whose Discovery Group includes well-known fashion labels Charlie Brown and lili, as saying that Australian Fashion Week lacked participation by Australia's own established brands because the fashion week organizers, IMG Fashion, erred in focusing on new talent and failing to persuade more of the country's top operators back to showcase their latest designs. His following statement, and I quote, really ruffled my feathers.

"I think fashion week is a fantastic opportunity for new and emerging talent, but for an established brand to participate in the week is like Madonna going on American Idol."

I couldn't believe that I read this. I couldn't believe that this Sydney fashion label owner really said this. In fact, I wrote to The Age to let them know what I thought about this. Is this fashion designer right? Would established brands avoid participating in fashion week because they would be mixing it with too many new and emerging talents? Would this happen in Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo or New York Fashion Weeks? Does participation of younger, new and emerging talent somehow dilute the standard or quality of Fashion Week shows? I wonder how the many young, new and emerging fashion designer talent around the world would feel about this! I wonder what other established designers around the world think about this!

Aren't Fashion Weeks about showcasing "new and up-and-coming collections" from talented fashion designers whether young and emerging or from the older brigade? Shouldn't Fashion Week's job be to expose all segments? Talented young and emerging fashion designers, and I also include Fashion School graduates in this, also need exposure to the buyers and the press etc who frequent these shows. This experience could easily be the biggest turning point for a young, very talented and creative fashion designer and be that needed break that launches him/her into that established fashion club. Indie and new fashion designers may not as yet have an established name but they often bring a real buzz to these shows! Focusing more on rising talent, and less on established names might be a cry out for something new and exciting!!

It's great to see our most talented young designers amongst the big names. I'm unapologetic about my view on this and would love to hear what other fashionistas and fashion designers, both established and up-and-coming think about this! I would also love to hear what fashion buyers and the fashion press think about this!

New Kate Moss TopShop Collection Now Available Online

Following on from the footsteps of the Madonna endorsed fashion range for Sweden's H and M, Kylie Minogue's swimwear range for H and M, and Stella McCartney's womens designer fashion collection for Target in Australia, the often controversial Kate Moss today launched her new fashion collection for the UK based, chic fashion boutique, Topshop. Topshop are renowned for putting high fashion on the high street but at affordable prices. Have they done it again this time with Kate Moss?

Hundreds of fashionistas queued outside Topshop's flagship store in Oxford Street London to catch a glimpse of this naughty supermodel, nicknamed "Cocaine Kate" posing as a mannequin in one of her sexy dresses for the launch! No doubt they were also there to grab a fashion designer bargain at the opening sale.

Unlike the hysteria that we saw earlier this year at the Stella McCartney womens designer fashion sale in Target stores throughout Australia, fashion shoppers at the Kate Moss TopShop sale were each given an individual wrist band allotting them a 20-minute access to the Kate Moss collection, and in batches of 150 at a time. What's more, they were each only allowed to buy five items from the Kate Moss fashion collection which includes pieces priced from £12 to £150.

The Kate Moss Topshop collection, which Kate Moss helped design, includes a pansy flower dress, one-shoulder mini-dresses, a striped waistcoat vest, t-shirts, pinstripe pants, skinny jeans and suits. Following the central London launch the Kate Moss fashion collection will go on sale nationwide and next week will be available in the US through Barneys.

Also, in a bid to avoid the mayhem seen at other similar in-store sales, the Kate Moss Topshop collection is now available online at

However, once again, due to the expected demand and in fairness to all customers, you will only be able to purchase 1 of each Kate Moss style and can buy no more than 5 items at a time. So choose wisely!
