Entitled 'Bergdorf Goodies', Bergdorf Goodman's Holiday windows are a dreamlike world filled with gilded treats, sugary inventions and luscious sweets. Visitors will be delighted by an enchanting display of generous proportions while discovering the selection of gifts being offered this season at the famous New York City department store.
'This year our artistic team became faux-pastry chefs, dishing up a wall-to-wall profusion of sculpted confections. Everything candied, iced and lavish,' says David Hoey, senior director of visual presentation.

The Men’s Holiday windows, designed by Shane Ruth, visual director at Bergdorf Goodman, are filled with Bergdorf Goodies from head to toe. Mannequins with candy heads and vivid coloured sweet treats surround rainbow tinsel trees and snow.
The Bergdorf Goodies holiday windows along Fifth Avenue and 58th Street in both the Women’s and Men’s stores will be in place until 3 January 2019.
