Remember this collection on the National Graduate catwalk at VAMFF recently? It’s called ‘Lilt’ by emerging designer Rachael Zheng, who has just been announced as the winner of Target’s $25,000 grant plus she’ll get to release a capsule ‘Designers for Target’ collection with the department store. “I am pinching myself,” exclaims Rachael, “every young designer dreams of a retailer giving them a shot to launch their career. I can’t wait to show customers my designs, developing the collection from concept to final product in this collaboration with Target.” Her Designers for Target collection will be available later this year. I hope it retains some of the pop colours and kicky shapes (if so I’ll certainly be adding a couple of pieces to my closet).
