Interesting. Target and Isaac Mizrahi have been working together for five years as part of Target's efforts to bring in big-name designers to draw up schemes for Target products. That partnership is apparently over.
Target Corporation and Isaac Mizrahi are ending their contract after partnering for five years on the Isaac Mizrahi for Target collection. Mizrahi has accepted a new opportunity as creative director for the Liz Clairborne brand at Liz Clairborne Inc.
“Target has been a fabulous partner for the past five years, allowing me to make my designs available to every woman, everywhere. Together we built an amazing business and trail-blazed the hi/low fashion concept. I am now looking forward to this new opportunity with Liz Claiborne, Inc.” said Mizrahi.
Trish Adams, senior vp/merchandising, Target said, “We've had a great partnership with Isaac. We're excited that he has this new opportunity and wish him all the best in the future. Like our partnership with Isaac, all of our designers, including our GO and limited-edition accessories designers, help Target make great design available and accessible to everyone.”
The Isaac Mizrahi for Target collection made its debut in 2003 with a line of women's apparel, accessories and shoes. It will continue to be available exclusively in select Target stores and at Target.com through the end of 2008.
