Nordstrom.com, the online specialty apparel retailer, today announced its partnership with Emme Associates Inc and the launch of its online boutique dedicated to the EMME clothing line.

The collection is a fun and fashionable line designed for the 60 per cent of American women who are a size 14 and above. Nordstrom.com will provide customers with the first online EMME boutique which includes the entire fall EMME Collection. Customers can shop the boutique by logging on to www.nordstrom.com/emme. Customers are also able to shop for EMME at select Nordstrom stores across the nation.

"Emme is a designer who truly listens to her customers and understands their fashion needs," said Victoria Dellinger, executive vice president of merchandising for Nordstrom.com. "We are proud to offer the EMME Collection to our customers in an effort to continue to provide them with the latest fashion that matches their lifestyle."

"We are excited that the EMME Collection will be offered in its entirety on Nordstrom.com," said Sherri Akers, president and COO of the EMME clothing line. "Nordstrom.com has always focused on the needs of their customers and we are thrilled that they share our vision of bringing contemporary styling to the full figured customer."

Customers can shop the EMME(R) Collection by logging onto www.nordstrom.com/emme.
Nordstrom.com has previously offered plus-size apparel on the site, but the addition of the EMME Collection expands the offering, giving customers a greater selection of fashionable merchandise to choose from.
