If you're not familiar with Bergdorf-Goodman, have no fear! I wasn't either, until I saw Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorfs a couple years ago. Now, I have the utmost respect and admiration for that store. It's basically the store for any designer to sell their goods - more so than Saks or Barneys. Obviously, I don't have any need to walk inside, and in fact I've only been inside once, but the windows are just truly spectacular during the holidays.
I meant to go last year, and really there is no excuse because I only live 20 minutes away, but I never made it. This year, I had some of the girls over for dinner and drinks, and we decided to make it even more Christmasy by going to Bergdorfs. So glad we went, and that we saw the windows at night (less people, better pictures!).
The holiday windows at Bergdorfs are often considered in their own right to be a holiday spectacle. And they rightfully should be. Each window takes thousands of hours and hundreds of designers to concept, build and assemble. Each window is filled with such detail, that you could stare at it for ages. I love the mini painting by a couple mice behind the large painting.
This year's theme was all about The Arts. Each window touched on The Arts, including Architecture, Literature, Painting, Music, Theater, Film, Dance, and Sculpture. You can read more about the inspiration here.
