The haute couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier said: “Every time I’ve been to Australia I’ve been impressed by the laid-back, unstuffy confidence that Australians display with their fashion- it resonates with my design philosophy and has such synergy with my own approach to fashion and style.
“I have looked for inspiration in many ways but one of the constants is the street and what people are wearing. I believe in fashion that you can wear every-day not just on a catwalk – which is really what Target stands for at its core – which made it the right retail partner for me to choose to bring this range to market in Australia.”
Managing director of Target Australia Stuart Machin said: “Jean Paul Gaultier is a world- renowned designer who has made a mark in the fashion industry for celebrating creativity, diversity and individualism.
“The collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier is another example of our determination to help make quality fashion affordable for every day Australians- and we’re proud to have him join our Designers for Target program with this range.”
The collection will be available online and in store early 2016.
