Each window is a fantastic tableau, a narrative, a piece of theater inviting the viewer into rich imaginary worlds of fashion and surrealistic luxury. Window design is a vanishing metier, but it remains an enduring art form providing rare views through the glass into fantastic realms of dreams and fantasy. In these pages, Linda Fargo, the renowned window artist for Bergdorf Goodman, opens up her portfolio of magical tableaux created especially for this crown jewel of the retail world. Her palette is wonderfully rich and eclectic, juxtaposing relics of the past and the present, symbols of art and literature, Western culture and exotic lands, moving easily between the marvelous and the everyday. These windows continue to astonish and delight all who flock to them for the traditional annual Christmas displays, as well as the untold numbers of passersby who stop on the street year-round to gaze at them, getting caught up in their magic. Open these pages and you open yourself to Fargo's enchanting worlds, visions rarely still encountered on strolls down the fashion avenues of the world.
