Winning Windows 2016

The king of street theater, Bergdorf Goodman reigns supreme, reclaiming its spot at the top as the best holiday windows in New York

By Jessie Dowd

For the 17th consecutive year, the design:retail Winning Windows awards honored the top three Manhattan retail stores for their excellence in holiday window design. design:retail Winning Windows judges walked New York City, touring the storefronts and judging the incredible displays based on three criteria: originality and creativity, spirit of the season and technical aspects of execution. The 2016 judges included Alison Embrey Medina, executive editor, design:retail; Jessie Dowd, senior editor, design:retail; and Anne Kong, associate professor, visual presentation and exhibition design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).

To see the rest of the 2016 winners, as well as some fantastic standouts, see our feature in the January 2017 issue of design:retail.
