Nordstrom Puts a Giant Instagram Image on its Seattle Rooftop
14,000-Foot Installation Promotes Retailer's Anniversary Sale
Jul 22, 2015
Nordstrom marked the start of its Anniversary Sale this week by recreating an Instagram post on a giant installation on the roof of its flagship Seattle store.
The nearly 14,000-square-foot installation features the retailer's Leith leopard- print dress, an item available in its sale, together with a wooden hanger and the blue Instagram logo. Creating the dress required 400 yards of fabric, while the hanger is made of real wood (Nordstrom says it will donate the materials to Goodwill to be recycled after the installation finishes). The store also filmed the installation via drone for this time-lapse video, which it broadcast on Periscope.
