Backstage at Last Night’s GQ x Nordstrom Fundraiser

Last night marked a special occasion for the Nordstrom Men’s Shop, in collaboration with GQ magazine, and a charitable partner we’re honored to work alongside: The Detlef Schrempf Foundation.

Since 2006, Nordstrom has had the distinct pleasure of working with this inspirational organization (founded by former Seattle Supersonics basketball player Detlef Schrempf and his wife Mari) to put on yearly fashion shows—with 100% of ticket proceeds benefiting important children’s charities here in our hometown of Seattle. This year, we’re thrilled to say the event raised over $200,000 for local charities including Bellevue Youth Theatre Foundation and Inspire Youth Project.

Of course, beyond helping some amazing causes—the evening was a great chance to see some dapper fall clothes, enjoy a refreshment, and even see some local celebrities walk the runway. Read on for our exclusive photos from backstage to under the bright lights.
