New York City’s most luxurious department store carries the world’s top designer collections including many Latin designers. It is famous for the quality of its service. This is Bergdorf’s women’s store.
Bergdorf’s is also famous for the artistry of its holiday windows which are generally considered to be the most artistic in New York City.
Bergdorf Goodman Started as a Tailor Shop
Bergdorf’s started as French immigrant Herman Bergdorf’s tailor shop in 1899. A Jewish-American apprentice Edwin Goodman bought an interest in the shop which became Bergdorf Goodman in 1901.
Goodman built the business on women’s tailoring. His introduction of ready-to-wear helped the business grow. The store moved to its iconic location at Fifth Avenue and 58th Street in 1928.
Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows
Bergdorf Goodman reveals its 2017 holiday windows on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.
This season Bergdorf’s finds inspiration in New York City cultural institutions including:
- American Museum of Natural History
- Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)
- Museum of the Moving Image
- New York Botanical Garden
- New York Historical Society
- New York Philharmonic
The windows are created by David Hoey, Bergdorf Goodman’s senior director for visual presentation.
Best viewing times are late in the evening or early morning.
Trump Tower is just down the street and this creates occasional traffic and security problems. Ugh!
