3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

At the collection launch party with my friend Scott on the left and George Kotsiopoulis from Fashion Police in the middle.
Designer clothes at affordable prices – that's what Target's collaborative programs cleverly offer customers, and the latest Target mash up features the work of Phillip Lim, the popular fashion designer who creates cool, quirky clothes for young women and men. Phillip Lim was born in Taiwan to Chinese parents, and the family then moved to Orange County in California. In New York City, Lim and a friend decided to start a fashion company called 3.1 Phillip Lim because they were both 31 at the time. The other night, my friend Scott and I bravely ventured into the Target collection launch party which was held in a big loft in Tribeca and mobbed with fashion's devoted followers. Many were snapping up the clothes and accessories like good looking handbags, and heading to the busy cashiers. George Kotsiopoulis from Fashion Police wandered by so naturally we said hello. Fashion Police with Joan Rivers is one of my guilty pleasures along with Chelsea Lately. George was wearing a black leather jacket from 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target and it looked great. The collection went on sale this week in Target stores and a lot of it is sold out already due to popular demand but you can check it out online!
