A large crowd of 500 showed up for the annual Nordstrom Designer Preview last night, the first time this event was held at the store. Attendees enjoyed cocktails, refreshments and browsing the boutiques and the designer collections on the third floor.
This event was an opportunity to view the Fall 2009 designer collections from New York, Milan and Paris together on one runway. Featured collections included Marc Jacobs, Andrew Gn, Burberry Prorsum, Donna Karan, Nina Ricci, Missoni, Stella McCartney, Redux Charles Chang-Lima and Oscar de la Renta. There was verbal crowd approval of Donna Karan's raspberry knits, Missoni's patterned prints and breathtaking evening gowns by Nina Ricci and Oscar de la Renta.
After the event many of the (always helpful) Nordtrom consultants were on hand with clipboards with the looks of the show to assist with fittings and to taking orders. Customers earned Twice the Rewards points when they used a Nordstrom credit or Nordstrom MOD card on any Designer Collections purchase made or order placed, at the event.
It's not to late to shop with the same rewards! Today the Designer Preview Fall 2009 Trunk Show will still be at Nordstrom, 520 N Michigan Ave from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. For more information call (312) 464-1515 x1350.
