Nordstrom To Pair With CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists!
It’s coming! November 13th is the big day when the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund announces it’s big winner out of the ten designers that were short-listed for the honor in July — but it looks like everyone’s taking home the prize!
While there can be only one CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund official winner, Nordstrom has announced that all ten of the finalists will be honored with a spot selling their goods at six Nordstrom stores — making this offer just this side of another fashion collaboration. (Sounds a little like that CFDA/Target capsule, right?) The designs will make their way onto Nordstrom store shelves in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and New York in February of next year.
CFDA chief exec Steven Kolb had this to say about this latest news, “It is a great opportunity for our 10 designers to have a presence in-store with a major retailer, and this will give their collections great exposure to a broader audience.”
If you’ve forgotten who’s on the shortlist for this years CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, here’s a list of the finalists whose goods will grace Nordy’s shelves in 2013:
Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C.,
Greg Armas of Assembly New York,
Sofia Sizzi of Giulietta,
Justin Salguero, Daniel Silberman, and Alina Silberman all of Illesteva,
Jennifer Fisher of Jennifer Fisher Jewelry,
Jennifer Meyer Maguire of Jennifer Meyer,
Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty of Suno,

We can hardly wait!
