kate spade Brings Blossoms of Color to Seattle Nordstrom with the Florence Broadhurst Tour
Last week, Maggie B and I spent another evening in Downtown Nordstrom. This time we were attendees of the highly anticipated kate spade new york’s Florence Bradhurst Tour stop. As we stepped off the escalators onto the second floor we were met with a party-like atmosphere of color and print. Maggie B, a 20-something kate spade groupie, was all giggles and bounces as we shopped the exclusive Nordstrom merchandise. I, too, found several items that brought out exclamations of joy and big smiles of my own.
This was no regular shopping evening. When we said party, we meant party. There were delicious bites to eat, soda with colorful straws, and live music from the Vivian Girls. All around us were Japanese floral prints in pinks and whites and blacks originally created by Australian artist, Florence Broadhurst. kate spade new york Creative Director, Deborah Lloyd was there as well and took a few minutes to answer some of our questions.
Deborah Lloyd told us about how the event was truly a celebration of the collaboration between Nordstrom, kate spade new york, Florence Broadhurst, and the kate spade girl. We talked about the exciting prints that will be debuting each month. If you are a kate spade lover like Maggie B (and me), you’ll remember that 2011 featured a different color each month; this year we will be treated with a new monthly pattern!
The Florence Broadhurst tour bus will be making several more stops around the country, but don’t worry if you missed Seattle, there is still plenty of fabulous kate spade shopping at Nordstrom and katespade.com.
Fashionably yours, Andrea and Maggie B
