2009 Nordstrom Designer Preview Fashion Show

Honestly, I didn't sleep well last night because I was too excited about attending tonight's Nordstorm Designer Preview Show. There were three things, to be exact, that I was anticipating: 1) testing out my new Canon SLR because I was getting super tired of producing poor photo quality to all you readers; 2) Fall fashion! I love love love fall fashion; and 3) the designers! Oh, I'm talking about Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, and my girlfriend Versace! Yes, they were all there.

Held at the Paramount Theatre, the doors opened at 6:30pm for guests to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oevuvres while they mingle and did some boutique hopping. Each designer featured in the fashion show had their own little boutique set up for guests to get a better look at the garments that were being featured in the show. Guests were also able to pre-order the featured fashion; however, the only thing missing were the actual designers. Oh how a girl can wish...

So just how I like it, the show started at 8:30 as promised. Guests were seated fairly quickly and the show was rolling in no time. Already too ecstatic about the show and antsy to see what's to come, I was thankful that there weren't any long speeches. We got the chance to meet the new Seattle Art Museum's president to whom the show was benefiting and then out strutted Gucci.

The featured designers in the Nordstrom Designer Preview show were Gucci, Missoni, Stella McCartney, Marni, Versace, Nina Ricci, Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, and Chanel.

This was by far one of the best fashion shows I've attended thus far. It was so well organized and the fashion did not disappoint. I will go to bed a happy girl tonight!

I am really attached with the fashion shows. Fashion shows are fun and creative way of highlighting some of the ethical issues surrounding the fashion industry. Organising a fashion show can be very time consuming and there is a great deal of hard work involved.

Fashion shows are the real mirror of fashion we are going to follow or the fashion which is prevailing in our society. The event management companies play a great part in that.
