This was an exciting and rewarding project that we worked on in 1997. The goal was to celebrate the launch of Nordstrom’s new flagship store and pay tribute to Seattle civic pride with a line of sophisticated neckwear designs. We began by researching Seattle’s architectural history. Then, shooting with both digital and conventional cameras, we photographed historically significant buildings that also happened to feature design motifs that might translate into compelling neckwear designs. We pored over our many images and put our true talent to work; developing nine unique and exceptional designs, five of which are featured in this section.
