The global fashion industry, in order to reach the maximum number of consumers, has of late become the victim of a flattening of personal expression, so the opening of LINDA’S SHOP at BERGDORF GOODMAN the other night was a refreshing, remarkable, delightful treat!
Linda Fargo, the SVP Fashion Director and Store Presentation at Bergdorf Goodman offers us what amounts to a curated tour of her mind, with all of its quirks and brilliance intact. In a landscape where sales per square foot seem to be the most important metric, one can only admire Bergdorf and Linda for this foray into her unique eclectic style.
SPIRIT & FLESH not only attended, but had the special honor of participating in the event, which included luminaries of the fashion and style world like Martha Stewart, Alber Elbaz, Alex Koo, Gilles Mendel, Francisco Costa, Derek Lam, Olivier Theyskens, Brandon Maxwell, Patricia Field, Carlos Souza, Ranjana Khan, Adam Lippes, John Demsey, Patrick McDonald, Paige Novick, Sally LaPointe, Stephanie von Watzdorf, Lynn Yaeger, Robert Burke, Ella Gafter and Talila Gafter, Camilla Olsson, Jackie Astier, Zina Sapir Rosen, Peter Farago, Ingela Klemetz Farago, Cheryl Scharf and David Scharf, Christina Zervanos, Lauren Ezersky, Edward Tricomi, Devinn Bruce, and Blair Eadie. There was music by DJs AndrewAndrew and even a lip print reading by Lipsologist, Beth Engerson!

Spirit & Flesh Signature Issue, which was inspired by Linda, and featured both, her as our cover subject, and some of the items available in her shop, beautifully photographed by Björn Wallander, was available to attendees of the event, and featured in one of Bergdorf Goodman’s windows – a contribution, which we can only express our deep gratitude to Ms. Fargo for.
