I normally don’t go past midtown but last night I made a trip up to East Harlem to celebrate Target‘s first Manhattan location at the East River Plaza. As you know, Target always knows how to throw a good party, not only was it star-studded but they had yummy food for all the guests! Think beef patties, jerk chicken, catfish and mini velvet cupcakes, everyone was enjoying the food rather than shopping haha! At the event I spotted Isabel and Ruben Toledo (they’re super cute together and nice), Stephen Burrows, Tyson Beckford (*removed my lil comment, the attn is on the new TARGET store*), Russell Simmons, Rev Run, Selita Ebanks, Kelly Rowland, Doug E. Fresh, Angie Martinez and Bobbito García. I bought a leopard skirt from Stephen Burrows and a bikini from Isabel and Ruben Toledo, cute stuff.
Prior to the store’s public opening, the preview shopping event serves to honor the spirit of the Harlem community while highlighting a set of exclusive Harlem Designer Collections – a limited-edition collaboration series featuring designs from Isabel and Ruben Toledo, Stephen Burrows and Marcus Samuelsson. Target will be donating 5 percent of each product’s purchase price to a Harlem non-profit of the designer’s choice. The collection, ranging in price from $3.99 to $34.99, will be available for purchase in the East Harlem store beginning July 25, followed by select stores and on Target.com on August 1.
The new Target store will be opening to the public on July 25, 2010, be sure to check it out!
