Nia Sioux, Bryce Xavier, and others have partnered with Target to design and release the retailers latest apparel line. The young stars spoke with PEOPLE about their visions when creating the signature styles.
“It’s also a personal and powerful message – I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t dream big from such a young age,” Nia says about one of her designs that has the word, ‘DREAMERS’ plastered across. “I hope when girls wear it, they feel motivated and inspired to follow their dreams, too.”
YouTube sensation Carson Lueders also discussed the new line. “Like a lot of kids and teens my age, I am inspired by my favorite role models in sports and the music industry,” the musician shares. “If they are wearing it, I want to wear it,” he adds.”
Nia Sioux and Carson Lueders are joined by Bryce Xavier in their collaboration for Target’s new venture. Bryce is a 15-year-old violinist who has shared the stage with some of the music industry’s greatest performers that include Cee Lo Green and Janelle Monae. Xavier has also had his shot at performing alongside the Disney Orchestra, which was the opportunity of a lifetime that many veteran violinists do not receive.
“We want guests to feel a sense of joy and discovery when they shop at Target, and Art Class delivers just that and more,” Michelle Wlazlo, senior vice president of apparel and accessories at Target, says of the retailer’s latest venture in fashion. “The line has been a runaway success since it first launched, and now we’re bringing guests even more newness – and personality – with the introduction of Fall Semester,” she adds.
Target’s Fall Semester of kids’ apparel launches in stores on August 27, 2017.
