Mizner Park’s Lord & Taylor may be holding its grand opening on Thursday – but we’ve got the scoop on how you can get an inside look into one of the biggest store openings of the year.

On Oct. 9, Wednesday, Lord & Taylor will host a private VIP party from 6-9 p.m., where you can meet Mark Badgley and James Mischka, the designers of the glamorous Badgley Mischka, and Project Runway judge Nina Garcia (who's also the creative director of Marie Claire).

Four executives from Hudson’s Bay Company, which runs Lord & Taylor, will be present as well.

Tickets are $25 per person, with sales benefiting The Junior League of Boca Raton and the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County.

See you there!

**Lord & Taylor is located at 200 Plaza Real.
