Nordstrom debuted a new format last night at the Season/Shift Nordstrom Party. Guests were invited to mingle among curated racks and carefully staged models. The event featured dancers en pointe giving off an art-party feel, rather than a regular runway show. With a more relaxed format, buyers could get close to the garments, and see them in action as the models lounged, read magazines, or arranged flowers. Nordstrom representatives helped guests try on items to buy on the spot. Stunners from the designs included a pair of velvet Louboutin oxfords, a multi-colored fur vest from Fendi, and floral designs stitched into a Dior sweater dress.
