With great anticipation every year New Yorkers and tourists alike flock to the sidewalks of 5th ave to see the dazzling window displays that leave you believing in holiday magic. These little boxes of wonder are always a true testament to imagination, creativity and a childlike wonderment hidden in us all.
This year Bergdorf Goodman and Swarovski collaborated in their holiday storytelling by incorporating millions of Swarovski crystals into their dazzling display. However! It’s not limited to just the windows. Inside the aspirational fashion dreamland of Bergdorf Goodman more enchantment awaits. Have you ever seen a crystal Christmas tree and a gown to match? Swarovski sparkle is all over the store from the crystal wall curtain to magical hanging bespoke sculptures so brilliant you believe you are living inside a snowflake.
The collaboration between the iconic department store overlooking Central Park and Swarovski, the world-renowned crystal company who is celebrating their 120th anniversary, is not limited to display fantasies only! They also partnered with designers to create an exclusive selection of gifts, including couture gowns with crystal embellishment by Badgley Mischka, Naeem Khan and Alexandra Vidal, crystal dress by Tanya Taylor, crystal jumpsuit by Alice + Olivia, crystallized clutches from Atelier Swarovski by Edie Parker, Atelier Swarovski by Arik Levy rock formations and Swarovski covered accessories, ornaments and home décor items from some of the top names in contemporary fashion and design.
I love going to Bergdorfs and I had to see it all for myself, to bring the special edition fashion pieces to life with a gorgeous muse and wander around one of the most beautiful stores in the world with everything glittering around me, filling my soul with that special feeling you only find during the holiday season…magic.
