Has anyone seen this fascinating documentary/movie? It is a behind the scenes look at arguably the most famous department store in the world!
The film shows the team behind the extraordinary Christmas windows, which are worked on for months by a team of designers and merchandisers. The sales team are also interviewed and they tell stories of past sales like the tale of Yoko Ono who dropped in late one Christmas eve and bought 70 fur coats for her family and friends…the sale totaled $400 000 -a sum which today would be equivalent to about $2.5 million! Incredible! There were wonderful stories about famous celebrities of the past and many interviews with celebrities like Joan Rivers, Karl Lagerfeld, Vera Wang …it is a delight to watch, even if only to see the creative process behind the spectacular windows.
the windows are absolutely mind boggling and are a yearly tradition….a must-see if visiting New York at Christmas time!
