Target Hits the Style Mark at The Ace Hotel

Friday, March 11, 2011

Target hosted a very VIP dinner last night at The Breslin in The Ace Hotel to celebrate the 5th anniversary of GO International and their coveted collaborations with fashion labels like Proenza Schouler, Libertine, Rodarte, Zac Posen, Rogan and many others. Lots of the fashion stars who have done lines for Target were at the seated dinner including Erin Fetherston, Tracy Feith, Thakoon, Richard Chai as well as Chloe Sevigny, Terry RichardsonMarjorie Gubelmann, Theo WennerMickey Boardman, Lucky‘s Editor in Chief Brandon Holley (literally just back from Paris) June Ambrose, Spike JonzeAlex Calderwood (the man behind The Ace), Sheila EAndrew Bevan, jewelry designer Pamela Love, Justin TherouxJohnson Hartig of Libertine and Nina Garcia.

Afterwards, despite a torrential downpour, tons of people packed the lobby of The Ace. We spotted Liv Tyler and Lake Bell (with fun new bangs) to name two beauties. Santigold took to the stage to sing while the VIP dinner guests used their Target gift cards to shop for frocks by Target’s designers (who re-issued their most popular designs) at the adjoining Opening Ceremony store. Fun fact: Santigold and Kate Schelter went to a liberal private school in Pennsylvania. “Her name was Santi White,” Schelter said. “And she played lacrosse.” And now Santi is a rock star!
