9 Looks from Target's GO International Designer Collective

When news broke in late October that Target would be celebrating the five-year anniversary of its GO International program with a collection featuring 34 dresses from 17 past GO International designers, I felt a tinge of excitement with the knowledge that I'd be able to get a few dresses I previously missed out on. In my head, I envisioned the dresses that I'd want Target to make available again: the popular Rodarte sequin ribcage dress, the Zac Posen safety pin print gown, the Erin Fetherston Peter Pan collar dresses (all of them!), the Jovovich-Hawk floral, lurex chiffon, and crosshatch print dresses, and the Richard Chai blue rose print dress. Unfortunately, most of these dresses aren't part of Target's Limited Edition Collective, which will be available March 13 through April 10. I'm curious as to how and why the 34 dresses were chosen, because they don't seem to be based upon popularity.

At any rate, I've chosen 9 of my best picks out of the 34. Most of them are as on-trend today as they were when originally released, especially the Libertine striped tunic (very Prada spring 2011), the Jovovich-Hawk floral dress and the Tracy Feith hibiscus print dress (so perfect for the 1970s trend this spring), the Thakoon colorblock dress, and the Erin Fetherston bunny print dress (which calls to mind the unforgettable cat and bird-adorned Miu Miu spring 2010 collection). I also love the updated styling in the look book, which makes use of belts and shoes that are currently available at Target.
