If you’re in Atlanta wearing Prada, it’s basically Jeffrey Kalinsky’s doing.
The retail icon is Nordstrom’s designer fashion director and he runs two namesake boutiques carrying high fashion. Today he tells Fashionista all about the happy accident that first led him to “put [his] name on the door.”
Not that it was happy at the time. Or, well, unhappy either, it was just … complicated.
Which makes for a good story, of course. Go read How Jeffrey Kalinsky is Competing in a Changing Retail Landscape on Fashionista.com now.

Side note: Fashionista, one of our top industry and scene go-to sites, also reported that yesterday was a sort of beach-and-pool equivalent of Black Friday/Cyber Monday. That is: the “most popular day of the year to buy swimwear online.” If you’re behind on the suit game, you better get on top of it now by shopping our Poolside Pop-In and the rest of our bikini, maillot, and related offerings.
