Appearing this week on Good Morning America, Joseph Altuzarra '05 discusses his new collaboration with Target. Glamour Editor Cindi Leive '88 also appears in the segment to describe pieces from the line. Altuzarra is already being compared to designers Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. "It feels very surreal," he says. "It's a 'pinch me' moment."
Altuzarra's new line and collaboration has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, The Independent (U.K.), The Guardian (U.K.), New York Magazine, Glamour, and Fashion Times, among others.
