Bergdorf Goodman unveiled its holiday windows celebrating with rooftop fireworks at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street.
This year, the department store is paying homage to the arts with its holiday window displays. In different panes of the store’s windows are depictions of literature, architecture, theater, painting, dance, sculpture, music and film.
Bergdorf Goodman is also celebrating the 60th anniversary of the movie “White Christmas” this year. At the window unveiling, the title song was performed by Broadway Kids Care. A special diamond-edition of the film DVD will also be sold in store this season, with proceeds benefiting UNICEF. Bergdorf Goodman also donated a portion of the proceeds from its window event to the charity.
Each of the windows this year is dedicated to an art form.
Theater – Bergdorf created a lit Art Deco marquee, with a mannequin in a gilded dress centered.
Painting – where a hand-painted Dolce & Gabbana gown takes center stage.
Literature – Coat Alice+Olive, Dress Prada.
Architecture – a mannequin in a Julien MacDonald gown becomes one with the skyscrapers and columns surrounding her.
Dance – shows a ballerina on pointe surrounded by gears, as if in a music box.
Music – where a tower of shiny brass instruments reflects glittery eveningwear.
The enormous snowflake hangs over the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street and it hangs as a reminder to the UNICEF’s commitment to reach a day when no children die from preventable causes.
