From the Back Cover:

A beautifully illustrated anthology of entertaining anecdotes about the singular, legendary fashion mecca that has influenced the course of personal style worldwide since 1901

Bergdorf Goodman is where Grace Kelly ordered her wedding invitations; where Jacqueline Kennedy was outfitted for her dress for the Inaugural Ball; and where designers such as Halston, Michael Kors, and Isaac Mizrahi got their start. Bergdorf is a legendary fashion mecca that captures the imagination, invites fantasy, and plays a central role in the history of New York society. Its inner sanctum is revealed in this illustrated book, a companion to the documentary Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's.

A venerable list of celebrities, personalities, designers, and veteran store employees, from Candice Bergen to Joan Rivers, from Christian Louboutin to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, from Bergdorf Goodman's Linda Fargo to Rachel Zoe, all relate a range of anecdotes—from the fabulous to the humorous to the touching. These stories paint an entertaining portrait that will delight and entertain lovers of fashion, shopping, and luxury.

With full-color illustrations throughout, this book presents gorgeous original sketches by Bergdorf Goodman of designs by Balmain, Chanel, and Dior; art and photography from major advertising campaigns throughout the store's history; vintage photographs of the store as it appeared in Look and House Beautiful; and a selection of images of the incredible windows for which it is world-renowned.

Welcome to Bergdorf Goodman!
