Von Follies by Dita Von Teese will also be available for purchase online at shop.target.com.au. Plans are to extend the product range at Target throughout 2012 as the brand is prepared for global distribution.
Murray Chenery, general manager of marketing for Target Australia, said exclusive designer fashions at great value prices is Target’s mission.
“The product mix is a true reflection of Dita’s own personal style and Target is confident it will resonate with customers who are inspired by beautiful, affordable and great quality garments,” said Chenery.
Von Teese will return to Australia in March to kick off the launch of Von Follies by Dita Von Teese, and she will walk the runway for Target at the L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival on Saturday, March 10.
The burlesque queen said she was pleased the launch would take place for Valentine’s Day, noting, “It’s the perfect time to treat yourself or someone special to a glamorous piece from my new collection.…I am excited to see my Australian fans again.”
