Nordstrom has announced that the department store will hold pop-up shops for up-and-coming designers in the month of February. Although the events are still a few months away, the excitement is already building. The ten designers, all finalists for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, include the likes of Tabitha Simmons, A.L.C. and Illesteva. With previous finalists including Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam, many have their eye on this year’s class of candidates.
Even since the iconic style of Jackie “O” Kennedy, fashion aficionados the world over pay close attention to the brands worn by the wives of Presidential candidates. With this most recent election season now behind us, many are reviewing the styles worn by both First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney. Although some designers were nervous to dress the two women, fearful of the potential political statement such collaboration would make, Isaac Mizrahi felt otherwise. During the campaign the designer said, “I love Michelle because she wears my clothes regularly. The thing about Michelle [is that] not only does she have great personal style, she has her own way of putting things together.” However, he was also excited to speak about Ann Romney, stating, “I would love to see Anne Romney in more of my clothes. I’m just going to be bold and say that!”
For this upcoming holiday season, One Kings Lane has collaborated with multiple designers for a good cause.

Proceeds from sales go to various charities supported by the designers, with the chic product available in stores starting November 14.
