Wish You Were Here

Christmas in New York is one of the most especial in the world as the city transforms into a Winter Wonderland every year. Right before Thanksgiving you start feeling the festive air in every corner of town. But for me, one of the staples of the Season is the famous Bergdorf Goodman Christmas Windows on the Fifth Avenue block between 57th and 58th streets . Ever since I moved to Manhattan, I look forward, with anxious anticipation, to the reveal of these magical and inspiring displays. This year, Linda Fargo and David Hoey, heads of the store's presentation team, were inspired by fantasy travel to faraway places. Hoey describes them as as a mix of unexpected arrivals and departures influenced by Roman mythology and the movies — the reason for their name "Wish You Were Here." 

These visual confections don't happen overnight. It's a long process that takes their very talented Visual Team a whole year from concept to the unveiling. For the last fourteen years they have wowed and amused thousands of loyal admirers with their wild imagination and genius. This year, Bergdorf Goodman published a new limited-edition book from AssoulineWindows at Bergdorf Goodman (above) celebrating their legendary windows. But as if that wasn't enough, they also released a very cool behind-the-scenes video, Follow Me: the Making of Bergdorf Goodman's 2010 Holiday Windows, showcasing the elaborate and meticulous production of this year's displays. It's definitely a must-see, that's why I'm sharing it with you at the end of this post.
