BERGDORF GOODMAN TO OPEN VIVIENNE WESTWOOD BOUTIQUE
NEW YORK--Bergdorf Goodman and Vivienne Westwood will team up for a fashion show featuring her fall collection on Sept. 13 here, and to launch a new Westwood shop on BG's third floor. Westwood is scheduled to appear at the fashion show and meet with customers the following day at the store. Bergdorf's will also feature the clothes in its Fifth Avenue windows. "We feel Vivienne Westwood is one of the most inspirational designers in the world today," said Dawn Mello, president of Bergdorf's. "The quality, detail and workmanship are exquisite. She was the first to emphasize the closer fit and the waistline. "Once the theatrics are stripped away, there are very wearable clothes for a wide range of people," she added. The location for the fashion show is yet to be determined. This is the first time BG is carrying Westwood.
