Nordstrom Announces Holiday Gift Guides & Offers

By  | 

Can you believe that the holidays are almost here? In preparation for the Holiday Gifting Season one of our favorite retailers, Nordstrom, has announced their gifting guides and special offers to help shoppers get ready.  Pulling out all the stops to attract shoppers, Nordstrom has launched a new marketing campaign  produced by Nordstrom and directed and photographed by Theo Wenner, who has worked on original campaigns for Chanel, Chloe and Topshop/Topman, as well as editorials for Vogue and Rolling Stone. The cast includes Guinevere Van Seenus, whose early career began as a teenager walking a Nordstrom fashion show, as well as longtime Nordstrom customer and model Jan De Villeneuve, who has been gracing runways for over 50 years. I love the diversity of this casting.
