If there’s one place where resort collections should fly off the shelves, it’s Seattle at the onset of the grey season—at least Nordstrom hopes so.
On Saturday, October 22 at 12, the Bellevue Square outpost hosted the up-and-coming Canadian/Turkish/British designer Erdem Moralioglu and showed pieces from his latest fall, resort, and spring/summer collections. Guests at the event sipped champagne, mingled with the designer, and even sported the intricately pretty dresses alongside the real models.
The resort collection was the perfect mix of lux wintery velvet and breezy silk. Prints looked like products of some jewel-toned paint fight that broke out in the textile workshop. I’m sure Erdem (he’s like Cher and Madonna when it comes to names) won’t mind if you want to cheat, and wear one to a holiday party or two.
The pastel floral prints and whimsical lace of the spring/summer looks were enough to make any southern belle swoon, and to make all of us Seattle girls hope that Erdem has the power to summon sun rays out of the clouds.
