For more than 70 years, thousands of brides have traveled to Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City to find their wedding day looks. From the moment you walk through the doors, you’ll feel the magic of Kleinfeld. Not only does Kleinfeld have 30,000 square feet filled with the largest selection of wedding dresses in the world, it also has the greatest professional staff of over 200 employees who are dedicated to finding and perfecting your bridal look.
There’s a chill in the air, the sun is setting earlier and winter is almost here—and that means it’s time to unveil Kleinfeld’s 2017 Holiday Windows! We sat down with Creative Director Jacques Vigneault to learn all about his vision behind this year’s windows. Plus, get a glimpse at the Kleinfeld permanent installation at the WindowsWear Museum, below.
Tell us about the theme and the story behind the windows.
The theme of the the windows is a new journey together as newlyweds with travels, adventures, discoveries and the unknown.
What’s happening in the left window? What’s happening in the right window?
In the left window, the bride is waiting for her luggage at the airport baggage claim playfully bringing along her groom. In the right window, there is an airport scanner machine that x-rays all of the traveler’s belongings much like a bride under scrutiny.
Describe the use of color in the windows—what do they mean?
The colors used in the window are red and black from the traditional buffalo plaid pattern, and white to add festive holiday appeal and contrast between the bride’s luggage and other passengers’ luggage. She is in her own magical world bringing along her groom. The x-ray screen has illustrations in blue representing the traditional color of Hanukkah.
What designers are featured in the windows?
How long did the windows take to create, and how long will they be up for?
From the time the beginning concept was realized to installation of the windows, it took about 1 month and they will remain until the beginning of January.
