It would be virtually impossible to rattle off the names of every contributor to this project, but here's a sampling of some of the bigger ones: Designers include Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, and Dolce & Gabbana. Clients include Joan Rivers, Candice Bergin, and Susan Lucci. But these are only a fraction of the subjects interviewed. The list of established, as well as up-and-coming, designers included is truly astounding. Each is committed to the notion that Bergdorf's is the absolute pinnacle of the fashion world. If your line is there, you've really made it.
Aside from these testimonials, the documentary offers a nice amount of behind-the-scenes footage. We get a historical time line as the Bergdorf's legend evolved, get to know the head buyer and taste maker of the store, meet one of the shop's most notorious personal shoppers, and spend a few months with the team readying the dazzling Christmas window display.Read more ›
The people in this documentary were fascinating and the film does a good job moving from subject to subject in a quick pace. I thought this film would bore me, but it was quite the opposite due to the skill of the filmakers. Great documentary for anyone who is into fashion or people who love New York history.
Anyhoo, if you enjoy following high fashion as I do, this is the documentary for you. Isaac Mizrahi is particularly bitchy, and it's really funny. I enjoyed the whole darn thing, and it was hilarious, as are the incredibly stupid reactions some people have had to it in the comments. Ahhhh, Bergdorf's. Someday we will be together again.
The film consists of a series of loosely thematically connected segments, each of which deals with several aspects of the Manhattan department store, such as aspiring designers trying to “get in” or the backstage of window display design. The film has lots of visuals and some interesting people like delightfully sharp-tongued personal shopper Betty Halbreich.
But to me, the film does not seem to know what it really wants to say about the potentially intriguing subject matter. What is worse, each segment of the episodic film is not really revealing.
So, what do we learn about Bergdorf Goodman after watching the film? Sorry, but we learn not much. “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's” tells us a bit about its history (not enough), a bit about celebrity customers (interesting but not enough again) and how business is done (not enough). The film shows a lot about the New York high-end department store, but not much about what makes it a special place.

This was yet another boring documentary. I'm not sure why I gave it 2 stars rather than 1. I guess it's because I simply felt generous or maybe I hit the wrong star. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Roman Descendant
