Nordstrom Ottawa Gala



Hi guys! We've been MIA for almost a month, feeling bummed-suffering from the winter blues. Apparently Spring is around the corner....Apparently.

I have an exciting post to share today, and if you want to know more about Nordstrom Inc- a leading fashion specialty retailer finally coming to the 613, KEEP READING!

The Day has come, #NordstromOTT celebrated the opening of it's second Canadian store at the Rideau Centre with an evening gala. The opening gala hosted by Nordstrom, sold out to 1,800 ultra-stylish guests and raised $180,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and United Way.  The store will open it's doors at 9:30 a.m this morning, Friday March 6.



You guys!! Ottawa owned it, and Nordstrom embraced all the wonderful talent we have in the 613. Thanks to Nordstrom's PR Rep John Bailey, #Glimpse3sixty1 was invited to attend the gala and preview the new store while enjoying some good eats and live entertainment throughout the two level store.

I was super bummed, when my partner in crime couldn't attend the event at the last minute. Kris and I have been waiting for months to attend this gala and celebrate in style. Since Kris couldn't come, Asef was my substitute for the evening. How could he turn down a wonderful night of free food, music and pretty models in gorgeous dresses? All I asked is that he tuck in his shirt and wear dress shoes!




We had an awesome time and the night started off with music from our local DJ duo, Members Only, and as the evening continued guests were treated to soulful tunes by recording artist Sean Jones.


As we walked and checked out the store, we were treated to modelling vignettes in departments across the
store.


The evening featured models wearing some of the season's hottest looks from Akris Punto, Escada, Max Mara, Nordstrom Signature Caroline Issa, St John, ALC, Rag & Bone among others, all available at Nordstrom Rideau Centre.
 
If you're looking for a pair of Valentinos or Jimmy Choos, be sure to look for my niece Nazifa. She'll be working for Nordstrom as a shoe stylist :).


While we walked around, guests dined throughout the store on a variety of foods, unique hors d'ovres and desserts by local caterers. In true Ottawa Fashion, each guest received a traditional beaver tail treat as they left the store.





It was a great evening, and we are so excited to welcome #nordstromOTT to the 613. Make sure you take some time to visit the store today, or this weekend.

TGIF y'all!

Seema
xoxo
