Designer Issac Mizrahi on the importance of being stocked at Bergdorf's
"If your clothes are not at that place there's no future. There's no future for those clothes. Sorry."
Bergdorf Goodman has a special place in my heart.  It was the first department store to carry my line and it basically put us on the map!  Issac Mizarahi’s quote about the importance of being stocked in Bergdrof's is from the documentary Scatter My Ashes (available on Netflix), which is well worth watching for the young fashionistas among us. Issac's quote might be a little harsh but I am honored to have been a featured designer at Bergdrof's. During my first trade show, my sales rep (aka, my mom)
worked with me before I hired a "professional" sales rep. It was at this show that we met Tracey (my buyer) from Bergdorf's.  I remember my mother nudging me really hard as I was working on the booth d├ęcor. The nudge got me talking about the line to Tracey as she entered the booth. Thanks for the push mom! And as they say the rest is History!

Scatter My Ashes really touched me, as I have a personal connection being a designer featured in the store, and probably because I also have a unhealthy addiction to the iconic store, having spent many a Sunday shopping the 5th Floor. For those of you who have never been to New York or Bergdorf Goodman, I suggest watching the documentary.  Learn about the creation of the most amazing Christmas windows in all the land.  Listen to the story of the indefatigable personal shopper, Betty Halbreich, who has been working at Bergdorf's since 1976.  Hear the firsthand accounts of the many designers and fashion insiders who praise the institution and its rich history.  Then make the pilgrimage for yourself… I dare you not to burn a hole in the credit card!
