The holiday windows at Bergdorf Goodman were still not quite finished the other night when I went back to photograph them, hence the little man in the corner of the photo above, but even in their unfinished state, they are spectacular! Part of the reason they took so long was that David Hoey and his team went way over the top this year with their theme of all The Seasons entirely in white. When I met him this summer, he was just starting to think about the holiday windows and since then, they've spent many months crafting cakes out of styrofoam and bathroom caulk and other crazy things. What I love best is that even though there are a few coats and dresses in the windows, Bergdorf's isn't trying to sell anything but rather is giving away a magical experience for free. Something we can all definitely use these days!
