NEW YORK—A fabulous show has debuted on Fifth Avenue. Deemed the “BG Follies of 2012,” Bergdorf Goodman’s recently unveiled holiday windows celebrate performance and entertainment traditions from the 1920s and 30s.
It doesn’t really feel like Christmas until Bergdorf’s fanciful holiday windows debut. This season, the luxury retailer has designed a series elaborate tableaux paying tribute to the Ziegfield Follies, Vaudeville and Art Deco-era styling. With gold leaf, mirrored mosaic and all-white feather themes, each window is an “act” featuring vintage mannequins, designer gowns and thousands of decorative objects.
David Hoey discusses the ideas behind the windows:
Led by David Hoey, the holiday windows were produced by the Bergdorf’s visual team and will be on display through Jan. 3, 2013.
