eOne Films has announced that the highly anticipated documentary, SCATTER MY ASHES AT BERGDORF’S, as told by fashion icons such as Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar De La Renta, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg, Georgina Chapman, and Christian Louboutin, will premiere in New York City theaters May 3rd, and expand across the country in subsequent weeks!
It’s the most mythic of all American emporiums – a one-of-a-kind Manhattan institution where, over the last century, the view of fashion has been transformed into modern art. But behind Bergdorf Goodman’s magical window displays lies a very real world where the rich and famous wield their power and eccentricity, where young and talented designers have their dreams granted and denied, and where money and ambition co-mingle with radical ideas of beauty and provocative style. Now, for the first time, audiences get a chance to peek inside this world, as Matthew Miele’s Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s explores the history, inner workings, and untold stories behind the store’s rise from a modest ladies’ tailor shop to a mirror of contemporary culture.
