James (“Les Miserables” and “Book of Mormon”).

Festivities continued throughout the store, with 10 percent of proceeds from 6:00-8:00PM ET – including sales of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, the only DVD/Blu-ray to be carried in Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus stores this holiday season – benefitting the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

Bergdorf Goodman’s theme this holiday season is “Inspired,” with the store’s Fifth Avenue window displays embarking on a visual manifestation of this idea.  Each window is based on a different art form drawn from the performing arts, applied arts and fine arts.  Bergdorf Goodman’s team of display artists, helmed once again by Senior Director of Visual Presentation David Hoey, spent 11 months planning and producing this spectacle.  Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday windows will be on view through January 4, 2015.
