Kate Young Brings Affordable Glam To Target

Not much longer to go! Celebrity stylist Kate Young’s capsule collection will be revealed in Target stores on April 14. Young is one of Hollywood’s most sought after stylists, working with stars like Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz.

The collection gives us a few of Kate’s signature looks including peter pan collars, whimsical flower prints and the glam of old Hollywood.

“I have always been inspired by the magic of old Hollywood glamour, and I really wanted to create an affordable collection that allowed a wider audience of women to feel that magic,” she told the Cut.

Kate had previously worked with Target as a stylist, but it was an appearance on the Today Show that gave her the big break into design. In an interview, she mentioned it would be her dream to design affordable clothes for women. Soon after, Target approached her with an offer.
Kate Young describes the collection as exactly what she dreamed it would be.

“The line truly reflects my aesthetic for edgy, sophisticated style and is designed to offer items that are versatile, modern, and ideal for special occasion dressing.”

Instead of casting models for the collection’s advertising campaign, Kate stressed the importance of hiring “real girls” and not models or actresses who seem so “unreal” to a lot of women.

“ “It” girls today are seen as style icons and have the ability to influence what we wear and how we wear it, so it only seemed right for these amazing women to be involved with the campaign.”

Kate Young for Target will range from $14.99–$89.99.

Young is married to music executive Keith Abrahamsson. The fashion and music world of New York is all connected as Abrahamsson’s business partner Andres Santo Domingo is married to Vogue’s contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo. Kate also worked at Vogue before she became a stylist!
