It's been an exciting waiting time for all Canadian #fashionistas since Fall 2012 - especially those living in Calgary - as Nordstrom has launched its first international location at Chinook Centre in Calgary! The opening gala, hosted on September 17th, 2014 by members of the Nordstrom family (tickets were sold out to 1,800 guests within just 2 days!!) and raised $180,000 for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation and United Way of Calgary.

Beautiful #beauty section at Nordstrom in Calgary

Invited guests had a chance to taste Hotel Arts’ cocktails and delicious (and visually unique!!) hor’s oeuvres, such as waffle cones, Alberta lamb popsicles, fried chicken, and roasted yellow and purple beet goat cheese lollipops—and few more!!
 It was a glamorous evening - just think of two spacious levels with apartment-style change rooms and 30 real models presenting such brands, like Missoni, Marc by Marc Jacobs or Rag & Bone.
 One of my favourite is definitely the shoe department with Valentino, Chloe, and what makes me so excited - exclusive shoe line designed for Nordstrom by Sarah Jessica Parker!!! 

Delicious creations by @HotelArtsYYC

I absolutely loved the background live music thanks to Toronto-based recording artist - Sean Jones!! (you really wanted to start dancing!)

Everyone was leaving the new store with fresh flowers bouquet (what a nice gesture Nordstrom!)

Must-try @NordstromYYC restaurant - Bazille

Calgary was very lucky to have Nordstrom opening first at our city - the next steps are openings at Ottawa’s Rideau Centre on March 6, 2015; Pacific Centre in Vancouver in Fall 2015; Toronto Eaton Centre and Yorkdale Centre in Toronto in Fall 2016; and Sherway Gardens in Toronto in Spring 2017!!
