Inspired by the likes of awesome up-and-coming designers including Wes Gordon, Greg Chait of the Elder Statesman, Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C. and more, we grabbed a few favorites off the racks at our flagship store and took to the streets of Seattle to photograph them. Enjoy the results below, along with commentary by Sahar Sokhandan from our designer collections buying office:


A.L.C. “The ultimate downtown look, pairing our favorite striped tee back to the perfect fit-and-flare skirt in bordeaux leather.”

Suno’s Flower Power

I blogged the front row at Suno a few hours ago, and now it’s time to check out the runway. Floral prints of all ilk dominated the New York brand’s spring/summer 2013 collection, which had a mix of trim, ladylike dresses with pretty peplums and boxy jackets over slouchy trousers. A cheeky cell-phone print in one drop-waist dress gave the show a lighthearted vibe, while striped separates balanced out the florals.














Judging by the elite front row and the brand’s recent CFDA nomination, it’s clear Suno’s on the fast track to fashion glory. And we’ll be right there with ‘em, carrying pieces from the collection through our CFDA partnership this spring. Stay tuned!

Front Row at Suno

New York brand Suno was one of 10 labels chosen as a finalist in the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards, which provides support to up-and-coming designers. We’re getting in on the action for spring, buying items from each finalist brand and selling them in special pop-up boutiques inside selected Nordstrom stores.

Suno unveiled its spring/summer 2013 collection last night, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. But before we dig into the runway photos, check out the star-studded front row:

Solange Knowles (Beyonce’s little sister), in Suno. She’s the face of many a fashion campaign lately. I adore her style.

New York Times street fashion photographer and documentary star Bill Cunningham. (I first asked to take his photo and he said, “No, I’m working,” so I had to sneak around to get this shot.)

French blogger Garance Doré. (She’s incredibly sweet and approachable. Note the microphone on her shirt—a camera guy accompanied her to the show for her ongoing “Pardon My French” video series.)

The blondie on the right is Marie Claire‘s senior fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi, who occasionally hosts Project Runway specials.

At right is the inimitable Anna Dello Russo, in Versace. Let’s check out her full outfit:

Cute! Love the Bvlgari watch and her ‘A’ earrings.

Vogue‘s Lynn Yeager. (I love fashion ladies who have a signature look. You’re always gonna see a red bob and kabuki lips on Ms. Yeager, who was super nice and gracious.)

Street Peeper photographer Phil Oh and a couple of his regular subjects: Shiona Turini, market and beauty editor for CR Fashion Book (Carine Roitfeld’s new endeavor) and Caroline Issa, Tank‘s executive fashion editor.

Bloggers Natalie Joos and Suzy Bubble. (I also spotted Natalie front row at BCBGMAXAZRIA’s show on Thursday.)

Jewelry designers Phoebe and Annette Stephens, and DJ Chelsea Leyland.

Time to head to my next show. I’ll update again soon!
