The Current Covet

| November 10, 2016 | Parties National

The beau monde made its way to Northbrook for Neiman Marcus’ annual Art of Fashion show.

Lights and scrims decorated the entryway that welcomed over 250 guests to a night of trendiness and treats. Viewers enjoyed seasonal hors d’oeuvres catered by Food for Thought, including mushroom quinoa crisp with roasted red pepper aioli and tellicherry-crusted beef tenderloin smothered in apple cider glaze. Petite sweets, like s’more tarts with toasted vanilla marshmallow cream, provided the perfect dainty dessert.

New Neiman Marcus Vice President and General Manager Linda Piepho mingled with guests prior to the show. Then, attention turned to the runway as models graced the stage in fashion’s finest, wearing Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford and more.

To garnish the night, luxury couturier Norman Ambrose made a special appearance to showcase his fall 2016 fur collection—leaving the crowd wooed and wanting. ‒Nicole Ross
