BLOOMINGDALE'S Christmas Holiday Window Display 2008

Captured above are BLOOMINGDALE'S Christmas Holiday window display. Each window recreates a scene from a popular song featured on Tony Bennett's new holiday album, "A Swingin' Christmas." Mural artist Vicki Khuzami collaborated with a team from Bloomingdale's to interpret the songs visually. Her paintings were transformed into retro-style moving cut-outs. The whimsical illustrations are very Normal Rockwell-esque, similar to Bennett's album cover. "Influenced by the advertising culture of the 1950's, Khuzami Studio created "pop-up book style" miniature scale models for each window. Templates were created and then fabricated by the experienced craftsmen at the Bloomingdale's carpentry shop and Khuzami's inhouse carpenter..." —via Khuzami Studio. Bloomingdale’s is located at 1000 Third Avenue at 59th Street.
