In February 2013, Nordstrom Inc. will host CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund pop-up shops in their stores across the country.  Underwriter of the initiative since 2006, the retailer will bring together a curated selection of merchandise from each of the 10 Finalists in unprecedented CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund shops. The ten brands include A.L.C., Assembly, Illesteva, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry, Jennifer Meyer Jewelry, Giulietta, The Elder Statesman, Wes Gordon, Tabitha Simmons and Suno.

“We are thrilled to have Nordstrom as a partner,” said Steven Kolb, CFDA chief executive officer. “It is a great opportunity for our 10 designers to have presence in-store with a major retailer, and this will give their collections great exposure to a broader audience. Nordstrom has been a long-supporter of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and we are excited to bring our partnership to the next level.”

The shops are set to open in February 2013 in five Nordstrom full-line locations including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles (The Grove), Chicago and Dallas (Northpark), as well as at Nordstrom-owned treasure&bond in New York City.
