Manhattan-based fashion designer Jason Wu must have been paying attention when Missoni's launch caused crazed shoppers to raid Target last month.

Wu, a favorite of Michelle Obama (who was recently spotted shopping at Target), will be the next designer to collaborate with the affordable retail chain.

"The exciting thing about this limited edition collection of affordable women’s wear and accessories is that it allows me to reach a wider audience and bring my designs to people who may not have been able to purchase them before," Wu told Women's Wear Daily.

Wu's collection is expected to include sophisticated, feminine looks for day and night. His muse for the line? A glamorous black cat named Milu, according to Target.

The line's not scheduled to appear until February,  but Wu already has the fashion world buzzing.
