For the tenth installment of Snapped at BG, we spoke with a wonderful mix of customers visiting from across the globe to attend the shows at New York Fashion Week. Each of these men and women are fashion enthusiasts that have a strong connection to Bergdorf Goodman in some way, shape, or form. It’s these vibrant individuals that help to make our store the one-of-a-kind destination that it is.

Who inspires me? Diana Ross and Cher – and Barbra Streisand for the nails!”
Goy, visiting from Bangkok.
I lived in LA for 20 years, but now I’m back in Bangkok. In New York, fashion can be more out-of-the-box than in Thailand. They take more risks here. Back home we only have one season and it’s called hot.”
I find amazing old clothes and then I flip them on eBay. For example, I recently found an old Chloe suit at an estate sale. I bought it for $130 and then I sold it for $350. I also found a Gucci by Tom Ford dress from 1996 that I bought for $200. I think it’s worth like, five grand.”
I wear Comme des Garçons as often as possible. Actually just the other day I bought a new piece up in Linda’s Closet! Comme des Garçons is it’s own show.”
I’m actually coming back tomorrow and spending a half day here. Bergdorf’s is the best.”
