Recently, CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund announced its winner for the CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund Prize! Greg Chait of the Elder Statesman was the winner of this year’s $300,000 prize. The runners-up, Tabitha Simmons and Jennifer Meyer Maguire, will each receive $100,000.

This Spring, Seattle-based retailer Nordstrom will launch CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund pop-up shops featuring a curated selection of merchandise from each of the 10 CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund finalists. As a long-time supporter and partner of the CFDA initiative, Nordstrom has taken its relationship to the next level and will be the first to feature all 10 designers together at one brick-and-mortar store.

The shops are set to open in February, 2013 in five Nordstrom full-line locations including Downtown Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles (The Grove), Chicago and Dallas (Northpark), as well as at Nordstrom-owned treasure&bond in New York City.

Get to know the 10 finalists and their collections in the special CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund video series as seen on the Nordstrom Blog: The Thread.
