9. Bergdorf Goodman has hosted many lavish fashion shows

Bergdorf Goodman’s exterior.

Bergdorf Goodman has historically been notable for its luxurious collection prominently displayed in the store’s central windows, but the store has also hosted its fair share of fashion shows to showcase these outfits. In 1981, the store organized a show for Fendi Furs at the nearby Pulitzer Fountain, which served as the runway. Tiers were lined with black Mylar and filled with gallons of water, although all these preparations amounted to little since it downpoured for most of the night.

In 1996, John Galliano presented a lavish show in the penthouse. This year, designer Marc Jacobs showcased his selection at Bergdorf Goodman, and the fall 2021 collection was presented at the New York Public Library and projected simultaneously on the facade of Bergdorf Goodman.
