Hey Phoenix Film Fans!  Calling all fashionistas... Opening this week is the documentary "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" giving all the insider info behind the iconic department store located in New York City.


Taking a behind the scenes look to what goes into to catering to the rich and famous, the department store Bergdorf Goodman rivals any Broadway or Hollywood production in terms of creating a world of luxury, elegance and grandeur to those who can afford it. From the window dressers to the personal shoppers to how designers and lines are selected, it is all carefully crafted, selected and presented to the world.


You know you're a fashion lover when the person being documented you can identify  before their name is flashed on the screen. Interviews include high end designers such as Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Oscar De La Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, Vera Wang, Diane Von Fürstenberg, Robert Vedi and many more. It’s more like a sampling of the major designers that Bergdorf Goodman showcases.


What was fascinating about this film is that the amount of care and attention paid to every. single. item that is selected by Linda Fargo the Fashion Buyer of Bergdorf Goodman. A very likeable woman, her role in the fashion world is even greater than Vogue editor Anna Wintour (whom the character was based on in The Devil Wears Prada book/ film) in setting trends in what people buy. Overall look of the documentary is well done, keeping it classy and interesting with the historical background and timelines presented. If you're a fashion lover I highly suggest checking out this film because when you recognize the designers along with the celebrities, which this film is chock full of, it makes it for a glamorous 93 minutes of run time. Check out "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" when it opens in theaters starting Friday May 31, 2013.
