A favorite of fashion and street-style photogs, Caroline Issa embodies modern style with just the right dose of fresh—only one of the reasons she’s become a style blog darling and industry notable.
A few of our snaps of Issa over the last few seasons at Fashion Week.
Counting ourselves as among her biggest fans, we’re extra excited to announce that in February 2015, Issa is infusing her most-wanted style into an eponymous collection exclusive to Nordstrom. (♥!)

A savvy creative consultant, fashion director (TANK Magazine) and overall incredibly talented human being, Issa is adding her fabulous touch to 25 ready-to-wear styles. In the works since early this year, Nordstrom Signature x Caroline Issa will launch with a current, chic and covetable mix of wardrobe must-haves, like easily transitioned day-to-night beauties, gorge foundation pieces and more.
Caroline is designing each piece with an eye on versatility, wearability and luxe materials—all reflecting her vision of modern, easy closet essentials for any woman who doesn’t mind a little attention from the street-style paparazzi. It’s all about her philosophy of investing in beautiful clothes that will last—and that you’ll want to wear—for a lifetime.
We’re totally behind building a closet you know you’ll love every time you open its doors, and we’re 100% sure that Caroline’s collection is going to make that very, very easy.
Stay tuned for more about our partnership, surprise exclusives and for the much-anticipated debut of our newest collaboration.

This week, we welcomed RtA to via C. The brainchild of design duo Eli Azran and David Rimokh, RtA (Road to Awe) is an LA-based brand that has already caught the attention of industry notables and celebs like Kristen Stewart—who knows a thing or two about style. Over the course of a year, what started as a collection of bottoms has grown to include modern tops and jackets with an urban edge.

“I’m loving the mixed-media denim and leather pieces that have a menswear type of vibe but still stay sleek and feminine to the shape.” —Glamour

The elegant and timeless designs of Escada are now at Nordstrom! For over 35 years, this German-based brand has reinvented uncomplicated chic with rich color palettes and innovative fabrics that will take you from everyday to evening with ease. Daniel Wingate, Escada’s fashion director, reveals his inspiration behind the spring ’14 and resort collections.
“The main inspiration while designing the Escada spring/summer 2014 collection was a feeling taken from the Italian and French Rivieras,” says Daniel, who has been with the house of Escada since 2003. “For the resort collection this spirit then linked itself to a very soft and pretty color.”
