Nordstrom's Launching CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Pop-Up Shops

Next spring, Nordstrom is launching five pop-up shops featuring merchandise from the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists. Opening February 2013, the pop-ups will bring little-known (but amazing) designers like Giulietta and Wes Gordon to a larger audience, which is especially great since most of those labels aren't carried in many brick and mortar stores. And even if you can find their pieces on Net-A-Porter or other websites, sometimes it just feels necessary to see a brand in person before you buy something from it for the first time. (Like Suno, which is on the finalist list—I think it's sorta hard to understand the awesomeness of their prints until you eye them up close.)

For that experience, those who live in Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas or New York can visit Nordstrom's pop-ups to check out and shop pieces from the 10 finalists. If you can't wait until then, though, you can always shop some of our favorite picks from each of the designers below, and just take our word for it: this stuff is good. Really good.
