On Monday night, Bergdorf Goodman teamed up with Unicef to unveil their highly anticipated winter 2014 storefront windows and lit the snowflake hanging over 5th Avenue and 57th St.
This event takes place annually, and this year the theme of Bergdorf’s windows is “Inspired” There are 5 separate store windows, each inspired by different arts—this year featuring theater, music, literature, painting, and architecture. For the event, they also invited Tony Award winner Nikki M. James to sing a rendition of “(Everyone’s Waiting For) The Man With The Bag.” Actress and UNICEF spokesperson Téa Leoni also gave a speech celebrating the event. Bergdorf’s fashion director Linda Fargo announced that this year’s UNICEF snowflake is made with 16,000 crystals and will remain lit for the rest of the holiday season.
Festivities continued throughout the store, with 10 percent of proceeds from 6:00-8:00PM ET – including sales of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, the only DVD/Blu-ray to be carried in Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus stores this holiday season – benefitting the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday windows will be on view through January 4, 2015.
