Last Tuesday night I attended the Kate Young for Target launch party representing the Target Inner Circle. It was seriously the most fun I’ve had all year. I was able to ask Kate a few questions, and I’d love to share photos of some of the celebs sporting dresses from the Kate Young Collection and see who was your fave. Are you game??
Q&A with Kate Young
I have a fancy event coming up in a few weeks, and I bought the red off-the-shoulder dress. What would you recommend in the way of accessories?
- Everything in the Kate Young for Target collection is meant to be mixed and matched. Consider layering one of the bodysuits under the red one-shoulder dress for an edgier look. For accessories, keep it simple. The dress is a statement in itself, so opt for subtle jewels and a fresh makeup color palette with a bold eye.
How do you find inspiration for such a variety of styles?
- I create inspiration boards for all of my clients and did the same for my collection with Target! As a stylist, I wanted to design a collection that both reflects my aesthetic for edgy, sophisticated style and encourages women to create their own red carpet moments.
Do you have a favorite dress in the collection?
- It’s constantly changing, but right now I am loving the black polka dot bodysuit layered under the black strapless bow dress. Ask me tomorrow, I may have a new favorite!
How long did it take, from start to finish, to create the collection?
- From the initial meeting to launch, the collaboration process took approximately one year.
I find it incredibly fascinating to think about creating an entire collection of dresses from scratch. It is certainly not my arena of talent!!! Kudos to Kate Young for creating a collection that is current and edgy and also wearable.
Which Is Your Fave?
Kate’s original claim to fame is as a celebrity stylist, and some of her best friends and favorite celebs attended her launch party sporting her new designs.
I can’t believe I didn’t realize so many of these talented ladies were present! Or maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t because I probably would have made a fool out of myself like I did when I met Giada.
