Inexpensive Designer Collabs Pays Homage to Black Friday Sales

— November 20, 2012 — Fashion
With Black Friday sales fast approaching, it would only be appropriate to pay homage to those high-end designers who have collaborated with mass retail giants, making their usually high-end products accessible to the average consumer in a way much like what Black Friday and Cyber Monday provide.

While many can only dream of owning couture items or anticipate the day that Black Friday comes around once a year, these collections allows us to sport couture items without the wait. From H&M to Target, each of these affordable retail stores have collaborated with a myriad of adored designers from Versace to Jason Wu.

Just like being in a large retail store during Black Friday, the designer collaboration lines fly off the shelves exactly because they are as affordable as they are fashionable. With this being said, it is easy to see why people love both Black Friday sales equally as much as they do designer collaborations.
