In a new Designer Collaborations initiative launching in March, Target will be working with well-established designers to bring their wares to the masses. WWD reports: "Alexander McQueen is the first on deck and will design a version of his McQ collection called McQ Alexander McQueen for Target. The collection will have rock 'n' roll influences and edgy details such as studs and tattoo-print fabrics." The fashion trade makes the distinction from Target's Go International program, which works with emerging designers. A look from McQ right. [WWD, subscription req]
