Target is still a year away from opening in Canada, but the discount retailer is bringing its limited-edition Jason Wu collection north of the border – for one day.

Wu will be in attendance at a pop-up shop at 363 King St. W. in Toronto on Feb. 23. It is slated to open at noon. A Target-branded tote has also been created exclusively for the first-ever Canadian store, and prices for the collection range from $10 to $45.

Wu, who grew up in Vancouver, created the white, one-shouldered inaugural gown worn by U.S. first lady Michelle Obama.

"Working with Target has allowed me to reach a much broader audience and I'm so excited that my Canadian fans will have a chance to experience this collection for the first time," Wu said in a release.

"My collaboration with Target reflects my classic design esthetic and is filled with feminine pieces that will brighten up any woman's wardrobe."

Target will donate an amount equal to 100 per cent of the sales from the event to United Way Toronto.
