Fall 2009 Nordstrom Designer Preview


Wednesday, July 22, 2009
The Paramount Theatre
911 Pine Street, Seattle

The most exciting fashion runway event is going on in Seattle tonight. I have high expectations, but I know there will be a sensational presentation of fall collections from renowned American and European designers. My lovely photographer and I will be looking fabulous. I'll be wearing Pencey with my Prada, and she's selected a vintage cocktail dress from a private collector.

This event is presented by Nordstrom in partnership with the Seattle Art Museum Supporters and is generously supported by Sterling Vintner's Collection, Ciroc Vodka, and Domaine Chandon. Gotta love the combination of alcohol and clothes.
