Because The Season Would Not Be The Same Without The Amazing Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows
Fifth Avenue would not be the same without the wonderful holiday windows Bergdorf Goodman reveals to passersby each year. In continuing with its tradition of storytelling, the 2014 holiday windows did just that. The Arts was the theme for this season, depicting various forms of artistic vitality and ingenuity. To mark the celebration, holiday favorites were sung by Broadway Kids Care, and a performance from Tony-Award winning actress, Nikki M. James. The event also included the lighting of the iconic UNICEF Snowflake that is located at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street by actress and UNICEF Ambassador Téa Leoni. Senior Director of Visual Presentation David Hoey, Bergdorf Goodman’s President Joshua Schulman, and Senior Vice President Linda Fargo revealed the pièce de résistance to the crowd. Each window characterizes a unique art form including a window of a modern bugle girl performing in the middle of an enormous display created entirely from recycled musical brass instruments. And a window revealing a performer dressed in a golden beaded gown by Julien MacDonald beneath a marquee with neon lights demonstrating there’s no business like show business. Following the unveiling, a surprising production of fireworks above the Fifth Avenue store concluded the festivities outside and continued inside the store where shoppers had the opportunity to purchase Irving Berlin’s White Christmas where 10 % of the proceeds that evening benefitted the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
