The CFDA awards will be handed out at the Lincoln Center New York City tonight and Anna Sui is receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.  A mini fashion show from Lifetime Achievement honoree, Anna Sui and the 2009 womenswear nominees will showcase their designs, and Anna’s going to be the only female designer in that crew as this year’s class is full of men.  The well known designer has been recognized the world over for her influences in the industry. The show marks as a preview of the move of New York Fashion week to Lincoln Center…farewell Bryant Park.

“Don’t expect anything less than stellar models to strut their stuff on stage, nearly every big name is already booked for the mini-shows.”

Her “patchwork boudoir” style got its start in the eighties and debuted on the runway in 1991. Ever since girls have been parading the runways with print dresses and edgy  killer boots.   The brand stretches its reach through women’s fashion, cosmetics, and fragrance across North America, South America, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. She’s got a Soho flagship, 32 boutiques, international cult status (particularly in Asia), a successful beauty line, and the pièce de resistance: the Anna Sui BoHo Barbie®.

The Anna Sui Designer Collaboration will be in Target September 13th! Yes!

I have always been a fan of designer partnerships with mass retailers,” Sui told WWD exclusively. “I think it is a great way to bring fashion to everyone. I love Go International and was intrigued with Target’s new take on designer partnerships. It’s a fresh approach. I was able to select a muse or source of creative inspiration to focus the collection around. It is an exciting challenge to try and interpret my aesthetic into a mass-produced product with a specific inspirational source as the focus

This line was inspired by Brooklyn-based characters Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams from the US TV show- ‘Gossip Girl.’ Their “punk-rock” style reminded her of herself as a teenager. Mark your calendars, it’s expected to hit 250 select locations nationwide.
