Gone are the days of looking through your favorite style magazines and wishing you could rock designer duds.

High fashion at low price points is in! A number of designers are collaborating with major retailers to bring their unique creations to the masses. Just this summer designer Jeff Koons collaborated with H&M to produce a one of a kind, luxury handbag with quite an affordable price tag.

Who doesn’t love ballin’ on a budget? The words affordable & high fashion may sound like an odd combination to some, but in recent years pricey fashions and frugal fashionistas have successfully merged in the retail marketplace. Altuzarra for Target will be available in store, online at target.com and netaporter.com.

Altuzarra’s collaboration with Target will feature nearly 50 pieces of fierce, patterned and printed pieces for women. The collection will include everything from outerwear to accessories. A fierce bootie seems to be what women are looking forward to from the Altuzurra collection. Altuzarra’s collection is for the modern gal. It features classic cuts and silhouettes with a modern twist, like a pop of color or a quirky pattern.

The nearest Target to campus is located at 2701 Lawndale Drive Greensboro, NC 27408. There is an H&M located in Four Seasons Town Centre’ shopping mall.

Alexander Wang for H&M has been kept under wraps for months now. The collection does not hit retailers until November.

There have only been photos of a few monogrammed items, like a yoga mat, released to the public. The release of these products has lead some people to speculate that Wang will be introducing an active fashion collection with a sporty feel.

No one can be too sure since all that has been released about this highly anticipated collaboration is that it is set to be in stores on Nov. 6.  There will be clothing and accessories for both men and women. Will A. Wang stick to his signature style and create a line of all leather apparel?

Elie Tahari will unveil his fashion line in the beginning of Fall 2014. Minimalists are rejoicing! Sweaters, tops, pants, dresses, skirts, and jackets in numerous shades of blue, ivory, and black offer a sophisticated, downtown chic feel to this line. Many of the pieces in this line can easily go from work to night out.Basics done right are the basis for this collaboration. Kohl’s definitely got it right with this one! The nearest Kohl’s to campus is 3315 Battleground Avenue Greensboro, NC 27410!  These designer collars will definitely birth some great ideas for GHOE. Get your budget in order now so you can take advantage of these discounted designer duds.
