It’s always interesting to find out what actually will bee out and about during the Fall. You have to understand first of all that what we see on the runways are not usually what ends up on our person. A good percentage of the time, you will only see what buyers think are going to be the next big thing. You may even find yourself wondering where that Balenciaga coat went if it’s not a popular item with buyers. This makes the retailer preview shows all the more important. Short of going to the designers themselves and asking for a specially made piece, your only bet in getting exactly what you want from the runways is actually taking a look at the retailer shows.

I will actually be able to buy this dress that has been a coveted want since February. It’s just so darned intricately wonderful. Donna Kato of the San Jose Mercury news went through all the items that Nordstrom showed off this season and the buyers hit their mark. Several runway favorites are coming this August/September including pieces from Stella McCartney, Derek Lam, Missoni, Valentino, Michael Kors, Bill Blass, Peter Som, Burberry Prorsum.
