Vaccarello’s first full collection as creative director will be for fall 2015. “I’ve followed Anthony’s work from his very first collection; as soon as I met him I realized immediately he was the one, he gets it, his talent screams Versus Versace. I love his fresh energy and innovation, and I love being surrounded by a talent which brings newness to Versace.” Donatella said.

Target is launching its first new apparel brand since 2008. Called Ava & Viv, it will debut in stores and at target.com mid-February. Ava & Viv will cater to the plus size market, an area where the retailer sees a void waiting to be filled. The line will include sizes from 14W to 26W and X to 4X. Target has also extended the range of their existing brands to include plus sizes. “We’re expanding our online plus-size department with the introduction of other lines we’re buying from the market to create more breadth for the consumer,” said Stacia Andersen, senior vice president of apparel and accessories merchandising.
