Last night, in the middle of NYFW, Nordstrom brought some of fashion's biggest names together for an intimate dinner at the Nomad Hotel. The Seattle-based retailer is opening their highly anticipated Manhattan flagship for women next month, across the street from their newly opened men's store. The dinner was co-hosted Nordstrom's Pete Nordstrom by Business of Fashion's Imran Amed.
Monday evening turned out to be jam-packed with parties, shows and events. Between the Tom Ford show, The Blonds show, Vaquera's group show, and YouTube's launch party for their new style channel, the fashion crowd had no shortage of options. But major industry leaders all turned up for Nordstrom's intimate gathering, with some surprise guests in tow, including Grigor Dimitrov, who had just arrived from the Tom Ford show (and was still fresh from his U.S. Open semifinal appearance.)
Among the other guests were American designers (Tory Burch, Tommy and Dee Hilfiger) influencers (Susie Lau, Blair Eadie), executives (Estee Lauder's John Demsey, IMG's Ivan Bart) and fashion media leaders including PAPER's Mickey Boardman. Sies Marjan's Sander Lak, fresh from showing his acclaimed Spring 2020 collection, also joined the festivities, as did Jason Wu and Snapchat's Selby Drummond. A crew of top models including Ashley Graham, Paloma Elsesser, Lucky Blue Smith, and Karolina Kurkova partook, as well.
