“These cities are known for their amazing fashion, and the people there have such a strong sense of individual style. We want to make a statement with our stores in these markets and identify them as destinations for fashion, style, art and culture,” Olivia Kim, Nordstrom’s vice president of creative projects, said in a statement. “Our customers are really curious and educated about fashion, and part of our goal with Space is to create a platform to introduce our customers to this side of designer fashion — this place where the directional collections or up-and-comers have a place to live and grow.”
