CC’s Holiday Window Recommendations:

Macy’s Herald Square, this is New Yorks most famous holiday window display and is sure to please the entire family.


As a local New Yorker I can say Macy’s always seems to outdo themselves every year. I was curious as to what the theme this year would be as last years theme “Make A Wish” was my personal favorite.Macy’s always feature a two-story theme every christmas but one is a yearly return and that’s the window featuring scenes from the classic film Miracle on 34th Street the second theme this year will be “The story of Virginia O’Hanlon, the little girl who believed in Santa Claus”. The windows will be unveiled Nov 15th-Dec 31st.

Bloomingdales unveiled their 2012 holiday windows, this years theme is Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away.

These high swinging acrobatic windows will be great to observe and an added plus is Bloomingdale’s incorporated an interactive feature which takes faces from the observing crowd and the character inside becomes the viewer.This sounds very cool, please note in order to participate in this feature you must click here to download the FREE app.

Bergdorf Goodman, Holiday Windows thru Jan 3rd.

Bergdorf Goodman

There is a vast difference between Macy’s holiday windows as the holiday windows at Bergdorf Goodman are a more sophisticated high-end fashion driven display that uses couture garments as well as authentic antiques.  The visual presentation team directed by David Hoey devote a year to the production of the window displays. Bergdorg Goodman holiday windows theme for holiday season 2012 is  JAZZ. You’ll be star struck by the beautiful replicas of the 1920’s Ziegfeld Follies showgirls wearing their rhinestone gowns and feathers that were commissioned by Naeem Khan.

Henri Bendel presents their 2012 storefront window display “Deco The Halls”.

Deco The Halls evoke the 1920’s fashion to convey the feel of Henri Bendel store’s interior over 90 years ago. I found these windows to be very inspiring and beautiful. My favorite scene was the mannequin dressed in a vintage style 1920’s  flapper dress. The Henri Bendel Holiday windows will be on display until Jan 1st, 2012.

Saks Fifth Avenue went with a whimsical fantasy winter wonderland.

If you are in the city during the daytime there is no need to worry Saks has QR codes on the windows which you can scan and you will receive a link to the online Holiday projection show.
