Front Row Crowd

| April 9, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY San Diego’s style setters strutted into the Wyland Center at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for Nordstrom’s annual Designer Preview, a real-deal spring fashion show and pop-up boutique. THE SCENE Models glided down the runway before a crowd of 350 guests ogling looks from 12 top designers, beginning with Stella McCartney’s sporty racerback dresses and ending on Oscar de la Renta’s frothy tulle cocktail ones. Off the runway, guests enjoyed Champagne and passed hors d’oeuvres while trying on clothing, shoes and accessories from the current spring collections of Azzedine Alaïa, Jason Wu and Céline, among others. THE HIGHLIGHTS The front row set included big names like Karen Cohn, Sheryl White and Miriam Smotrich. Meanwhile, A-list fashion stylists like Mahjuba Levine were spotted shopping for their clients. Donna Karan was a fan favorite. The sartorial soirée benefited the San Diego Opera. Photography by Jason Farr
