Nordstrom has been creating quite the buzz about their new store opening in Vancouver on September 18th, 2015. The department store will be equipped with a cocktail bar, restaurant and of course the latest fashion for all of us to shop. Last night, Nordstrom held a pre-gala at the Vancouver Art Gallery to announce their opening gala benefiting four charitable organizations in Vancouver: BC Children’s hospital, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre, Covenant House and Vancouver Art Gallery. Tickets for the gala range from $150 for the opening gala and $300 for both the opening gala and fashion show. All the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the charitable organizations.

The gala on September 16th, 2015 at the Nordstrom store will also bring in some notable fashion editors such as Hamish Bowles (Vogue’s international Editor-at-Large) and Lisa Love (West Coast Director for Vogue and Teen Vogue) who are the special guests for that night. Local gala chairs set to be in attendance include: Jillian Harris, Jill Krop, Tamara Taggart, Kathleen S. Bartels, Judy Leung and Jason Sarai. Key member of the Nordstrom team will also be attending the event.

If you are eager to take a look at the new Nordstrom store before the opening, the gala ticket will actually grant you a first look at the store with cocktails, dinner, dessert and shopping all on the agenda for the night. For now, let’s take a look at a few highlights of my night. Can you tell black is my favorite color?
