Target began its ad campaign for the Parbal Gurung designer line a couple months ago with a February 8th launch date.
But, who the heck is Parbal Gurung?

Parbal was born in Singapore but, raised in Nepal. He apparently studied fashion at FIT in New Delhi, India and finished his fashion education at FIT in New York. He spent five years working at Bill Blass and then two years at Cynthia Rowley before launching his own line in 2009.

So now Target had targeted ( LOL ) Parbal Gurung for one of its famous designer launches. He likes pretty, feminine, romantic looks so the previews of the upcoming line on the Target website were enticing. A great selection of prints, solids, separates, dresses, shoes and jewelry that mixed together very well.
So I marked February 8th on my calendar and began to wait...
