Editorial Reviews

It's the most mythic of all American emporiums - and the scene of many an ultimate fashion fantasy. Now audiences get a rarified chance to peek behind the backroom doors and into the reality of the fascinating inner workings and fabulous untold stories from Bergdorf Goodman's iconic history. The legend, the parties, the fashion idols, the windows, the women, the buyers and shoppers - and most of all, the quintessentially American dreams of New York's high-fashion hot-spot - all come to life in an ode to a realm where creativity and commerce reign equally supreme.

Being someone who watches documentaries about every conceivable subject, I like to speculate about how much cross-over appeal a movie might have. Some documentaries strike such a universal chord, they can be embraced by a diverse array of viewers. Others may have a more specialized allure. Matthew Miele's "Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's" might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is practically essential entertainment if you follow fashion and/or if you're a shopping enthusiast. Profiling New York's legendary department store Bergdorf Goodman, this star studded affair is a veritable who's who of the fashion world. From designers to celebrity clientele, dozens upon dozens of well known personages weigh in on what has made this shopping destination such an iconic and elite spot.

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.

The fabled Department Store Bergdorf Goodman is profiled here, and this is a behind the scenes look at it, and it is fascinating. If you love fashion, as I do, and labels, as I do, you will LOVE this video. I've shopped there before, and had personal shoppers before, but had NO IDEA the amount of money they make, nor the amount of money these big moneyed customers drop at a single shopping trip (amazing!). If you're fascinated by the uber-rich and their world, you will eat this UP.

I'm not into fashion at all, but I loved this documentary. I am also in love with everything New York City and nothing is more New York then Bergdorfs. Even though I could never afford to buy anything in Bergdorfs it is still a fascinating place to visit and see how the other half lives.

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.

This was a tres fun documentary about NYC stalwart Bergdorf's. How I enjoyed it! How I wanted to book a flight from the hideous redneck hellhole I'm currently stuck in, order a glass of champagne on the flight, all the while cooing into my cellphone "Make me an appointment with your best personal shopper, STAT!" Then put on my dark sunglasses and flee undercover of night, my two kitty carriers my only betrayal as to identity as I board my private jet to my new life of glamour and rich lover(s).

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.

For anyone who loves the store and has a love of fashion, you really get a sense of behind the scenes and what it matters to the designers themselves who feel honoured to have their pieces there

Wow!!! I have been waiting for this film since I heard about the book. This is for every fashionista out there.

It is stellar as a production and the behind the scenes look at this emporium of luxury and glamour is so exciting.

I have shopped here years ago without ever knowing how much of a unique experience being there really was; I was not
overwhelmed but rather rejoiced in all the beauty surrounding me there.

This film is gorgeous!!!! BG is gorgeous as a store! And as they say in the film, you need not be rich to shop there.

Funny thing, the window displays were heavily emphasized in this film and like the famous personal shopper, Betty, I as
a patron never looked at them, just opened a door and entered a world filled with luxury that made me joyous.

Bravo to all who took part in this film. Can't wait to own it as a DVD. It is a very delightful experience.

The movie should have been a 10 minute short and not a 2 hour full length feature. While parts of it were interesting, especially some of the sound bites from famous designers, it was a big fat bore. There is not much fashion in the movie - it is more about designers talking about how fabulous it is to get into Bergdorfs and how that changed their careers. And, of course, since everyone here is extremely aware of the fact that whatever they say may be used against them, nothing but the most glowing things are said.
Save your money. There are a lot better fashion films out there.
