Nordstrom Live Spring/Summer 2019

I have a confession to make. I am not the most fashionable guy. During the winter and colder months, you will typically see me wearing a hoodie or one of my four flannel shirts. Now that it is spring many of us are changing out our wardrobes for clothes that are more appropriate for warmer weather. For me, this means wearing fun Hawaiian and pattern shirts. 

For the past several weeks I have been working at Nordstrom where I have been responsible for editing Nordstrom Live Spring 2019. Nordstrom Live is a biannual fashion show where they invite many of their top designers to connect with Nordstrom employees to show them the latest collections that can be found in their stores. It has been fascinating to learn more about the level of detail that all of these designers are putting into their latest collections.

Outside of getting ready in the morning I rarely think about the clothes that I am wearing. But it has been fascinating to hear designers talk about how they obsess over things like the fabrics they use, how clothes fit and the sustainability around the products that they make.

For me, the biggest takeaway was hearing about the level of detail that is being put into the clothes that we love and that gives us the confidence to take on the day. It is easy to neglect these things as we get ready in the morning. However, this is a great reminder for all of us that it is the unnoticed details that ultimately make the work that we are involved with special.

Big thanks to the video team at Nordstrom for getting me involved in Nordstrom Live. I had a blast and learned a ton. I am looking forward to the chance to work with you again.
