the fashionable Marnie Stern @ Santos Party House (more by Tim Griffin)
Marnie Stern

Alexander McQueen is no doubt up to his neck in his fabulous fall 2009 collection, with Paris Fashion Week just weeks away. But the legendary designer set aside a little time for the Cut to talk about one of 2009's most exciting collaborations, his forthcoming Target collection. The line doesn't hit stores until March 4, but New Yorkers can purchase it next weekend. Yes, we are special. Target's McQ Market will run from Saturday, February 14 through Sunday, February 15 at St. John's Center on Houston Street. So don't celebrate Valentine's Day, celebrate McQueen. Now you have a reason to be excited for Valentine's Day...
