The next big ticket

June 24th, 2010
by Allison Kaplan

In some cities, Nordstrom’s Fall Designer Preview draws upwards of 500 people. The crowd at Nordstrom Mall of America was considerably smaller tonight, maybe 150, but give it a year, I think we’ll see the fashion troops mobilize for this classy event. It’s not the dancing-on-the-rooftop party that you get at Glamorama, but if you love fashion and want to feel like a New York housewife, it’s the real deal: a straight, serious runway preview of fall collections including Chanel, Gucci, Missoni (you can already picture the blonde MN ladies in their patchwork sweaters and leggings) and the gorgeous finale, Oscar de la Renta (pictured here). Thanks, Nordstrom, for realizing that you don’t have to live on the coasts to appreciate fashion. As proof: after the show, guests shopped while sipping champagne. Armani, Donna Karan – and none of it on sale.

    Is this from the show tonight?

    I, along with a fantastic team of local artist, did hair for this.
