Last month when I swung by Bergdorf Goodman to see if they had any lovely new windows for me to gaze at I was surprised to find that the majority of them on Fifth Avenue, except for this window featuring an embroidered blue dress (below), were literally under wraps!
|Note the brown paper wrap all around this dress to protect the white floor below.|
I was disappointed for about a minute until I realized that there were stylists/visual merchandisers in one of the windows prepping it for display and they worked without the benefit of the screen! What a great peek, literally, into what it takes to get the windows ready for view.
The sun was directly on the stylists and they seemed mildly annoyed, probably because it was hot and they had to work in blinding sun. I noticed three people on the outside who probably worked for the store as well, looking at the window from the sidewalk.
I wish I could’ve held up a sign that said LOVE YOUR WORK to the talented gals and guys behind the window, making all of our fashion dreams come true! I count the Bergdorf Goodman windows one of the many treats of living in New York City.

|On 57th Street the windows were visible. I love this great red coat by DVF!|
The windows on the 57th and 58th Street sides of the store were available for view and I fell hard for coats shown in each—the red one by Diane von Furstenberg, the green one with the sky blue lacing (love!) by Dior.
