Last night the sweets and the very sweet were out for the premiere of Bergdorf Goodman’s 2018 Holiday Window display. This year David Hoey, Senior Director of Visual Presentation, says:

“This year our artistic team became faux-pastry chefs, dishing up a wall-to-wall profusion of sculpted confections. Everything candied, iced and lavish.”

Visitors will be delighted by an enchanting display of generous proportions. A dreamlike world filled with gilded treats, sugary inventions, and luscious sweets.

Bergdorf Goodman partners with Ladurée

This year Bergdorf Goodman has promised to sweeten their selection of gifts with exclusive dessert options from Flour Shop and Ladurée.

For the first time, Flour Shop will open a pop-up on the Fifth Floor of the iconic department store offering a unique Bergdorf Goodman inspired cake as well as some of their holiday favorites.

Linda Fargo, collaborated with Ladurée together they’ve created limited-edition flavors only available inside Noir on the Second Floor and Linda’s at BG on the Fourth Floor. There will also be a special holiday installation on the Third Floor by Ashley Longshore featuring her artwork along with a curated selection of product inspired by Bergdorf Goodies.

Elisabeth Holder, co-president of Ladurée, gives a Q&A

Last night was a sweet and luscious event at Bergdorf’s – I was lucky enough to catch up with a friend and owner of Ladurée Elisabeth Holder for a few questions on her recent work on the holiday window for Bergdorf Goodman:

Downtown Magazine: Tell us what it was like to be included?
Elisabeth Holder: I am so proud, as a French brand, to be part of the holiday window at Bergdorf’s, an iconic New York institution. It is an honor and a dream come true. To have this recognition feels very, very sweet indeed.

Downtown Magazine: how this came about?
Elisabeth Holder: Last year, Linda and Ladurée began their love story when Linda created her very own macaron (dark chocolate salted caramel in gold foil) as an exclusive for Linda’s Shop on the 4th Floor during the holidays. This season we expanded our collaboration as she opened her 2nd store-in-store called NOIR at BG, with of course another creation (dark chocolate expresso in silver foil.) The theme for the holiday windows is Candyland, so of course, Ladurée was a natural ask to participate.

Downtown Magazine: What do you hope to see from this wonderful partnership?
Elisabeth Holder: I love to see people finding the perfect gift to celebrate the holidays, it feels amazing and we hope this is only the beginning of Ladurée at BG. Linda is so creative, who knows… we have already started to talk about next year…

The Party Last Night

The who’s who of the Upper East Side came out to gaze and feast on champagne served with both savory and sweet bites.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
