You won’t want to miss this one. A runway show, designer showcase, and gorgous party thrown exclusively by Nordstrom and Vogue, the annual Fall 2016 Nordstrom Designer Preview this year is July 28, 2016.

All ticket levels for the event include a complimentary cocktail, dessert reception and valet parking. Here are the levels of ticket prices and what comes with each ticket:

The evening begins with 6:30pm cocktails and a preview of the designers participating in the event, and it’s one of the best fashion events of the year to see the best dressed men and women out and about in support of fashion and SAM. The 8:15pm show is a fast-paced runway with enough fashionable influence to make you wish for fall, even on a beautiful summer evening. Afterwards, guests can nibble on desserts and shop the runway looks.

This stellar event sells out every year, so it’s wise to order your tickets sooner than later. Visit SAM for tickets and additional information.
