a little holiday cheer ~ window display edition

Stores this time of year make all kinds of attempts to get you in the shopping spirit.  Most of the major department stores around the world work year round to come up with the perfect window display.  Harvey Nichols even employs set designers to attain the perfect display!  Below are my favorites…

Bergdorf Goodman in New York City showcased a return to the Jazz Age, with plenty of fringe and sequins.

Harvey Nichols in London features one of the best window display in the world.  This Christmas the store was inspired by Eastern trends that were shown on the fall runways.
