Nordstrom rolled out the runway on February 23rd for its annual Designer Preview showcasing Spring 2012 collections from big time international designers. This year’s pop up boutique and fashion show was held at the Port Pavillion on Broadway Pier and all ticket proceeds went towards Promises2Kids, an organization that helps break the cycle of child abuse. From classic Missoni stripes to floral Dolce & Gabanna dresses, sky high Jimmy Choo heels and to-die-for Oscar de la Renta ball gowns, Nordstrom has something that every woman will covet for Spring.
Here are the top trends we saw straight from the runway:
