What happens when a team of high fashion artists come to Charleston to shoot designer clothing for an iconic New York department store?  Beautiful images are made that capture the essence of our beloved city. Recently Bergdorf Goodman came to shoot in Charleston’s most picturesque locations for their magazine that premieres today.  They traveled to the city’s usual hot spots and transformed each setting into a cutting edge fashion editorial.

The Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau partnered up with Bergdorf Goodman to ensure their experience was top notch. They took in some of Charleston’s favorite spots by staying at Belmond Charleston Place; dining at Peninsula Grill, Charleston Grill, Zero Cafe + Bar, FIG; shopping at Croghan’s Jewel Box, George C. Birlant’s, Ben Silver, Pink Dot Beauty Bar, Preservation Society of Charleston; and even found time to explore Kiawah Island. “Bergdorf Goodman customers are as passionate about new travel experiences as they are about fashion. “We’re excited to share Charleston’s classic Southern style, historic architecture and burgeoning food scene with them,” said Mallory Andrews, Senior Vice President, Sales Promotion, Marketing and Public Relations for Bergdorf Goodman.

It’s an honor to have a world renowned fashion institution such as Bergdorf Goodman here in Charleston to produce captivating images.  In addition to the 28 page fashion story in their magazine they will dedicate window displays at their landmark location on 5th Avenue.  Their awe-inspiring elaborate windows are nothing short of amazing and I can’t wait to see how they pay tribute to Charleston.
