Be My Valentine, Alexandre Birman
Remember when Valentine’s Day meant a frigid afternoon spent over glitter and doilies and such? Good gracious I spent hours pouring over these DIY heart-shaped Valentine’s for my classmates, making sure that their names were outlined just….right.
Don’t you miss it? That tactile creativity spent at the kitchen table… Funny what growing up can do. Well, what if we gave you a little boost of encouragement? Like a chance to meet the most dashing Valentine we know? And win a pair of shoes? Well, listen up my friends: it’s time to pull out the scissors & glitter because your Valentine’s Day is starting to look up: the ever-so-darling and handsome Alexandre Birman will be spending Valentine’s Day with us (to celebrate his move to our Second Floor Shoe Salon) and would like to give one special friend a seriously good Valentine.
All you need to do is this: create a Valentine using one of Alexandre’s Spring Shoes shown below (collage it, photoshop it, photograph & rework it, etc) and tweet it to @AlexandreBirman and @bergdorfs including the tag #BGBirmanValentine (so we can keep track of each Valentine). Alexandre will review & choose his Valentine whose Cinderella moment will take place tomorrow, Tuesday February 14. We will get in touch with you through twitter so do make sure to check your feed. Official rules are below but it’s best to find inspiration and browse Birman’s gorgeously vibrant collection of pumps, platforms and slippers beforehand.
