Target Designer Dress Collection

Are you familiar with the Target Designer Dress collection? For the past 20+ years, Target has partnered with some of the biggest names in the industry. Plus, their limited-edition collections have included a range of emerging and established brands, and I especially love they partner with diverse designers.

In the past, they’ve partnered with brands like Cushnie, LoveShack Fancy, and Lisa Marie Fernandez. Did you shop the last collection? I purchased a piece from Lisa Marie Fernandez, and it’s the perfect summery item for a beach vacation.

For 2021, the limited-edition capsule lines include ALEXIS, Christopher John Rogers and RIXO. The lineup is PHENOMENAL. Plus, if the pieces are as great in-person as they are in the previews, we’re in business. 🙂 Below, I’m sharing some background on each designer and also highlighting a few items.

In the past, I’ve loved wearing pieces by ALEXIS, including this watercolor maxi dress, embellished fit and flare style, and this orange statement gown. Thankfully, the Target for ALEXIS collection has a much more reasonable price point, and the styles still pack a powerful punch.

About RIXO

In 2015, RIXO was founded by two best friends, Orlagh McCloskey and Henrietta Rix. Soon, these talented London designers took off and made a name for their colorful patterns and feminine styles. Plus, they are big supporters of empowering women. Furthermore, RIXO balances a vintage flair with a dose of modern style. In many ways, it’s perfect for the woman-on-the-go.

Therefore, it’s no suerprise the RIXO for Target dresses offer posh prints inspired by art, the designers’ travels, and vintage styles. Overall, RIXO’s mission is to design clothes that make people feel like the best version of themselves.

Friends, I’m head over heels happy that RIXO is a part of this limited-edition release. Their collection is SO pretty. In fact, this sequin ombré dress remains one of my favorite dresses in my closet.
