Last night, Bergdorf Goodman hosted a special cocktail event inside of BG Restaurant to celebrate our exclusive partnership with Amazon Prime Video’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The Emmy-winning series’ creator Amy Sherman-Palladino along with cast members Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegan, and Caroline Aaron visited our 8th floor immersive experience and toasted to the upcoming third season, premiering December 6th on Amazon Prime.
Inspired by the show’s 3rd season Miami locale, the 8th floor space mimics the iconic 1950’s Fontainebleau Hotel lobby with life-size murals of grand staircases (tune in to see Midge’s marvelous entrance at this very spot wearing one of the costumes also currently on display at BG) and unforgettable palm tree décor. With live music from the era à la a classical pianist playing tunes like Doris Day’s “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” and white-glove champagne service, guests will find themselves transported into the show.
Following the toast on our 8th floor, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, BG President Darcy Penick, and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” costume designer Donna Zarkowska presented a one-of-a-kind coat designed by Zarkowska exclusively for BG to be auctioned off with Paddle 8 in support of New York City’s garment district. They announced that all proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Manufacturing Initiative.
As Salke so eloquently stated, “We’re honored to be celebrating beauty, fashion, and the crafts of ‘Maisel’ with the takeover of the 5th Avenue windows at New York’s most iconic retail establishment, which is a true beacon for global style and luxury and all of our collective heartbeats whenever we’re in the city.” She continued, “‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ is a love letter to New York and its history. In honor of this great city, we’re proud that the proceeds form this auction for the coat designed and crafted by Donna is going to the Fashion Manufacturing Initiative.”
