This is a must see film for all Fashionistas!
To me it was like watching a personal experience having moved to New York to model for Emilio Pucci and later becoming a designer! Fashion has always had my heart and going to that store and gazing into the outside windows was a rite of passage into the store; it gave you the feeling of truly being connected to New York City, fashion and “The Epitome of Luxury with a price to match.”
This Documentary film examines some of New York’s best designers; fashion personalities come to gather to describe their connection to and love of Bergdorf Goodman.
Given how many celebrities have made Bergdorf’s their home away from home, it’s not surprising that we hear stories about them. Like the time Elizabeth Taylor ordered custom-made mink earmuffs for her entire Christmas list. Or the day John Lennon and Yoko Ono ordered 70 fur coats for their Christmas giving, a splurge that would have cost them $2.5 million at today’s prices.
The film also focuses on the 2011 windows, all created around a “Carnival of the Animals” theme. The film follows designer David Hoey as he visits artists’ showrooms and pulls all the elements together. Hoey’s idea for his work is to satisfy everyone, from children to sophisticates. “I want the windows to be perceived as hallucinations,” Hoey says, the ideal entry point for a store that is the center of so many fashion dreams.
Michael Kors tells us how he got his big break. Karl Langerfield, Jason Wu, Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen and so many more glittering people share their personal story of the past and the future.
And meet the one of a kind Betty Halbreich whose job it is to dress the most powerful names in Fashion, Politics & Entertainment!
There is truly no store like this in the World! It’s like a sacred shrine where fashion history and its stories has been kept safe within its walls.
Bergdorf Goodman, founded by master tailors Edwin Goodman and Herman Bergdorf, is located on the corner of New York’s Fifth Avenue and 58th Street, the former site of the Cornelius Vanderbilt mansion. This fall, Bergdorf Goodman celebrates its 111th Anniversary with a documentary film, a book, and events that engage New York in a dynamic way.
It’s a celebration of an icon and the city that makes it so unique. There’s only one Bergdorf Goodman: The pinnacle of style, service, and inspiration, since 1901.
