Fall 2014 Trends: Nordstrom Designer Preview

Nordstrom invited us to their 29th annual Fall Designer Preview, this year held exclusively in Seattle. I'll take you through backstage, cocktail + shopping hour, and the runway show in 15 photos! Let's go:

Backstage
Racks of gorgeous runway samples, rows of designer shoes, and heaps of luxurious leather bags strewn about all amidst talented stylists and artists readying the models for showtime.

Cocktail + Shopping Hour
Free-flowing Moscow Mules, Grapefruit Fizzes, and white wine + Nordstrom's fall designer pieces displayed for sale = my happy place. I'll write up an outfit post on what I wore soon!

Runway
Sitting front row chatting with social media maven Jess Estrada, and surrounded by inspiring local editors, writers, and bloggers.

Hey husband (in the blue shirt), I noticed you noticing me, and I just wanted to put you on notice that I noticed you too. He's shooting the show at an assigned spot in the photographer pit!

1. Dries Van Noten - Orange floral-print midi "Donavon" dress
2. Christian Dior - Navy wool suit jacket with trumpet sleeves

3. Michael Kors - Pearl grey fur vest with black silk long shirt and suede leggings
4. Gucci - Burgundy halter dress with leather top

5. Akris - V-neck zip front gown with full taffeta maxi skirt
6. Stella McCartney - Long-sleeved dress with wave detail

7. Dolce & Gabbana - Floral-print silk chiffon empire-waist gown
8. Donna Karan - Cognac double-face wool military coat

9. Marc Jacobs - Silver mini dress with organza wave detail
10. Oscar de la Renta - Black velvet halter gown

11. Lanvin - Khaki leather top with neck bow and faux fur mini skirt
12. Valentino - Multi-flower brocade dress with Rockstud t-strap pump

Fall 2014 Trends: belted waists, metallics, mixing bold patterns, and layering rich textures like wool and suede. Which number was your favorite look?

That's a wrap! Thank you Nordstrom for having us!

  11. I am SO in love with your Celine luggage tote! It's on my wish list. I have the trio but I find the leather is so, so sensitive to scratches so I'm uber careful. Do you find the luggage tote is okay for everyday use? If I'm paying that much for a bag I don't want to worry about the leather scratching easily. Thanks!

    1. Hi Mahsa! This Céline tote is pretty sexy, but it was on display for sale at the event and not mine. I totally get you about scratches on an expensive bag. The smooth leather on the totes are a little more durable than their other bags, but still easily scratched. It's why I'm teetering about getting the Céline box!
