While there can only be one winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, all 10 designers will have their collections sold at six Nordstrom pop-up shops come February 2013.

"It is a great opportunity for our 10 designers to have presence in-store with a major retailer," CFDA chief executive officer Steven Kolb said.

Indeed, the majority of the 10 finalists — A.L.C., Assembly New York, Giulietta, Illesteva, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry, Jennifer Meyer, Suno, Tabitha Simmons, The Elster Statesman, and Wes Gordon — are sold at relatively small boutiques, so this opportunity will give them a greater chance at exposure.

And, more importantly, it will give us the opportunity to have more access to these designer pieces that we covet year round!
