RR TopIn celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Cuban-American L.A.-based designer Robert Rodriguez has teamed up with Nordstrom to design a limited-edition top that will be sold exclusively at the department store from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 (which are the actual dates of Hispanic Heritage Month).

Rodriguez'  shirt, which features a draped silhouette, a black lace overlay and a carnival of feathers jutting off one shoulder, will sell for $225 — with all after-cost proceeds benefiting the Mana's Hermanitas program, which advocates for Latina adolescents.

The limited-edition tops will be available at 38 Nordstrom stores nationwide (including the store at the Grove in L.A.) and online at

"I was honored to collaborate," said Rodriguez, adding that the look was inspired by Spanish Flamenco dancing. "I wanted to create a jersey top that was out of the ordinary, so I adorned it with feathers."
