Target McQ Market Private Shopping Event

Target McQ Market Private Shopping Event

Monday, February 16, 2009 by Wendy Lam

Previously I’ve posted a video of the Target McQ Market tour at St. John’s Center while I attended the private shopping event on February 13th. The Target McQ Market closed yesterday (did any of you guys go?), but here’s a recap of the night. It was my first Target party and it was pretty amazing, I’ve ran into Whitney Port (The City), Amanda Bynes and Amanda Setton (Gossip Girl), other celebs that attended included: January Jones, Gretchen Mol, Michelle Trachtenberg, Brittany Snow, Rose Byrne, Zoe Saldana and many more that I didn’t spot. I was so happy to be able to shop before the official launch on March 4th, picked up a bunch of stuff for myself and my friends. The performance was by collection muse, British rock band, The Duke Spirit, it got everyone hyped up when they went on. Loved the outfit Liela Moss wore! St. John’s Center was huge, the reception on my cell was on and off so my tweets were on and off too.

The Target McQ Market featured booths made of chain link fence, distressed plywood and graffiti covered grates evoking the gritty ambience of Camden Market and nostalgia of a rock ‘n roll club. The market also featured young NYC artists who created one-of-a-kind pieces using prints, fabrics and embellishments from the McQ Alexander McQueen for Target line. Participating artists included: E Team, K8, Hardy, Alex Hubbard, Daniel Peterson, Chris Caccamise, Lovid, Jacob Feige, AK Burns, Shinique Smith and Trisha Bag. The “warehouse” was totally decked out, it was dope!
