Whilst being in New York I couldn't help but look at the amazing windows at Bergdorf's and I just thought that I would research into them and write a little blog post on my findings. 

The newest of Bergdorf Goddman's famous windows that stand along 5th Avenue are in celebration of the arrival of Ashley Longshore an amazing artist that focuses on painting 'bold portraits with larger-than-life personality.' 

The boldness of the paintings really come alive alongside the 3D elements that are also in the style of her work. Longshore describes her work as 'not pretentious. It is bold, unapologetic, colorful, celebratory, sparkly, humorous and it is not to be ignored.' This aesthetic is extremely clear throughout all of the windows. The artist has always admired Bergdorf Goodman and has featured the brand in a lot of her work like this photograph below. 

The reason I was so fascinated by these window displays is because of how bold and beautifully detailed they are. I then remember watching the documentary 'Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf' which reminded me of how much work and planning goes into creating these windows. I'm not going to lie, I am a little disappointed that my trip didn't coincide with the Christmas windows because in photographs they looked spectacular.
