Designers out on the road; it's a trend we've been tracking for some time now.

But Ottavio Missoni Jr. says his grandfather was doing it years ago, with a strong belief that you have to know who you're dressing and you have to give them someone to identify with. The founder's grandson stopped by Nordstrom to chat with staffers, shoppers, and more, and we had a chance to get the inside take on the beloved family fashion line.

Ottavio Missoni Jr., the grandson of the man who started Italy's (the world's?) most iconic knitwear line, visited Seattle and Bellevue for the first time this week, on Wednesday and Thursday November 20 and 21.
