Live music by the talented DJ Xwnia Wolf was playing throughout the day and champagne were also offered to shoppers.

Lafayette 148 NY X Deanna First at Nordstrom, Costa Mesa by Deanna First

Honored to be part of another amazing event in partnership with Lafayette 148 New York! I headed to CA for the second time this month to live sketch attendees wearing their favorite Lafayette look. The event took place at Nordstrom, South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA and lasted for roughly 3 hours.

Attendees were served cocktails while waiting for the runway presentation to begin. This collection is filled with so many amazing prints that really exude confidence. I am so excited to be part of their #WomenArtists Series this year. Photos are by the talented Jarod Harris Photography. 

Their Spring 2018 Collection is just breathtaking! Shop Lafayette 148 New York new collection and you will not be disappointed. #LafayetteLoves #WomenArtists
