Kevin Wills, Jason Wu For Target 'Vulture', Says He Planned To Donate The Clothes To Charity All Along
Remember the couple who pissed off shoppers (and then the Internet) when they bought up all the Jason Wu for Target stock at a Miami store?
Well, they're back... with an explanation.
The couple hatched the plan prior to the launch, Wills says. Then they headed to Target to purchase all the goods for charity with the intent of selling them for a good cause.
Regardless of motive, they were efficient: the 40-second cart loading added up to just under $5,300 worth of Jason Wu merch.
On March 4, Wills will indeed host an event for the charity Dress For Success Miami, called -- wait for it -- "Wu There It Is," where he'll sell the goods and donate the proceeds to the local branch of the clothing charity. He says he was planning this act of altruism the whole time:
"I like doing charity stuff," he says. "I like going to the ghetto and passing stuff out of my car."
