Bergdorf Goodman Unveils the Holiday Windows and the 2012 Holiday Experience
ACT V: "The Mirror Kaleidoscope" is the Grand Finale of the BG Follies of 2012. Twin showgirls are presented downstage, while a colossal, rotating, mirrored starburst rotates behind them. The multiple layers of this starburst contain nearly one thousand individual beveled mirrors. Each successive layer of the starburst rotates in an opposite direction from the layer behind, creating an extraordinary kaleidoscopic effect. The mannequins' matching gowns, studded in mirrors and rhinestones, were specially commissioned from Naeem Khan.
The ACTS continue along 57th Street, 58th Street and across Fifth Avenue in front of the Men's Store.
In addition to the spectacular windows, this holiday season Bergdorf Goodman has created several special and unique initiatives.
Bergdorf Goodman has partnered with TheCoveteur.com, the on-line fashion and retail website, to create an exclusive behind the scenes photo series and video about the making of the Holiday windows. Viewers are given an intimate view into the fantastical world of the Bergdorf Goodman visual team where they will gain access into their various studios for a glance at the teams' old world craftsmanship. The series releases online on BG.com, 5th/58th and TheCoveteur.com on November 21st.
