Target just launched a new collection called Art Class, a new exclusive Kids’ fashion platform featuring of-the-moment trends for boys and girls ages 4-12. The line is kicked off with a limited-edition collection called The Class of 2017, which was co-designed by a group of 10 notable kids whose interests range from singing and dancing to cooking and surfing, and are known for their creativity and ingenuity. The Class of 2017 includes 13-year-old YouTube sensation and singer Johnny Orlando and 14-year-old tech guru Mercer Henderson, among others.
Most items retail under $20 and features apparel for kids including jersey dresses, joggers, tropical-printed track jackets and tie-dye denim.
