I’ll admit, I have something of a “Target Problem” (my definition: I buy too much stuff there). I just love the retail giant’s affordable home fashions—especially now that the company’s made great strides in its green offerings (including Natural Home kitchenware).

So it’s great to see Target move into environmentally friendly clothing. Scott Mackinlay Hahn and Rogan Gregory, Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) award winning designer, debuted their eco-friendly clothing line, Loomstate, on April 19 at select Target stores and online at Target.com. Loomstate’s pelican logo assures that the clothes are made from 100 percent certified organic cotton, produced in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

Mackinlay Hahn and Gregory used nature-inspired graphics and patterns, printed on soft-washed fabrics, for a line that features 20 looks for women and men—at prices ranging from $14.99 to $44.99. Now, that’s dressing for success.
