“Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s” no longer just the siren song of a shopper who knows their stuff, it’s also the title of a forthcoming documentary that stars the historical store, and every living great in fashion.
The film examines Bergdorf Goodman’s 111-year evolution from a modest tailor shop to the brand-name behemoth it is today. The list of personalities who give commentary in the documentary including the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs,Diane Von Furstenberg, Georgina Chapman, and Christian Louboutin.
