On the evening of August 18th, 2010, Target is taking over The Standard, New York to create a brilliant, larger-than-life fashion show to debut Target Fall 2010 collections. Part fashion show, part light show, the Target Fashion Spectacular will bring the southern façade of The Standard, New York alive. In 155 rooms, 66 dancers dressed in the latest styles will perform dazzling choreography synchronized with fast-paced lighting patterns set to an original music score.
A simultaneous presentation will take place at the street level where models wearing 25 of the hottest looks from the fall Target lineup will appear in a nine-room replica stage that mirrors the windows of the hotel. Guests outside of New York will be able to experience this one-of-a kind event via a live-streaming broadcast at Target’s Facebook page: Target.com/spectacular.
