Design a Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Window

I could not resist this post as so exciting especially for those wonderful artists out there. Fresh from Bergdorf's own blog:

The time has almost come… beginning Friday, our curtains will close on Fifth Avenue and our talented Visual Department will begin their almost two-week installation of our highly-anticipated Holiday Windows.
With fantasy destination in mind, David Hoey and his team of artists will create a complex world of day tripping — where getting there is half the fun.  This is where Voyage dans la Lune and Jules Verne intersect… where intricate paper sculptures and jeweled creatures join Hoey on his trip through Victorian aviation, vintage futurism and more.
Adding a twist to tradition, we’re giving you the opportunity to create your own Holiday Window through our Polyvore Holiday Windows Challenge.  Using some of the inspirations and fashion favored by our visual team this holiday season, we want you to dream up your own Holiday Window and submit your collages between Friday, November 5 — Friday, November 12.  Linda Fargo, David Hoey and our tweeter Bergdorfs will choose the winning set.  The prize?  A $2,500 Bergdorf Goodman Gift Card, an autographed copy of our new limited edition Windows at Bergdorf Goodman hardcover book by Linda Fargo and David Hoey, an invitation* to our book signing and holiday window unveiling party later this month, and a private tour of the holiday windows by David Hoey himself.
Think you’re up for the challenge? Stay tuned for more details later this week!!
All I can say is ...YIKES !! What a great opportunity for some lucky, talented person. I will give it a try but not promising very much. Bergdorf's windows are just in a class all by themselves. It is worth the walk up 5th avenue to check out their windows 12 months a year!! 
Some of the gifts they are suggesting on their website are some of my fave chocolates & a few other items:

these Jimmy Choo Ugg Boots are quite an item 

Love, love, love these dolls !! I have similar ones from Bloomies many years ago and they are just so adorable !!

Every little girl starting at say age 12 will want one of these!! as they say "give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world" or maybe design a great Bergdorf window !! 

Water globes are a great item to bring back home to family and friends...this one looks like a real winner !! 

Yves Saint Laurent awesome clutch in splash of colors really caught my eye !! 

MarieBelle chocolates are to die for and this is an easy location to pick some up in Midtown during the holidays.....

Cappuccino Truffles ....need I say more?? omg should be this wonderful !!

All photos from Bergdorf's website/blog and can be purchased HERE along with some other unique items for the 2010 holiday season. Don't forget to check out this classy store on 5th avenue during your holiday travels to the city.
