The city is never more on-point fashion wise than at the annual Nordstrom Designer Preview. Attendees dig out their highest heels, biggest ball gowns, and most dapper of suits for an evening of all-out enjoyment. This year—with a guest list that included out-of-state Vogue editors, fashion bloggers, shoe designers, global DJs, and more—you all really dressed to the nines (the tens even...). 

We were on hand with photographer Miles Fortune to catch all the glorious arrivals, retail perusals, and back-stage happenings at Pier 91 last Thursday. Check out the photos below and stay tuned for our coverage of the NDP runway.
