Design on a Dime—Discount Designers

Tulle Skirt , originally uploaded by leFashionista.

With recent rumors circulating that Tommy Hilfiger may
soon have a line at Wal-Mart, someone has to ask—is
discount retail the new department store?

Brands like Isaac Mizrahi and Mossimo slowly crept
into Target’s lines years ago, and now Wal-Mart seems
to be catching up. Even K-Mart (now Sears Essentials
in many places) is beefing up their clothing lines to
reach out to a wider audience.

My personal favorite has to be the many lines at
Target like the Cynthia Rowley “Swell” collection of
accessories and bedding. However, the Isaac Mizrahi
line is also to die for.

Snag up some hot Mizrahi items this fall like this
adorable tulle skirt and match it with a sweet
embroidered purse for that czarina look this

Poll: How do you feel about designer duds at discount
chains? Tacky or Terrific?
