111 Years of Bergdorf Goodman

This year, Bergdorf Goodman is set to ring in its 111th birthday with parties, champagne and the debut of the documentary Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's. Of course, when you're 111 years old, you build up quite a history. And over the past century, BG has played host to some of the world's most glamorous people, thrown some of the most elegant parties and offered the most luxurious retail therapy to people all over the world.

In honor of its birthday, we took a look back at the life and times of one of our favorite department stores. Click through for more.

The New York City art scene was alive and booming in the 1980s—and to keep up with the changing culture, BG teamed up with various photographers and artists to shoot its ad campaign.  The result? Artistic creations from the likes of Annie Leibovitz, Dianne Blell and Dean Chamberlain.
