New York’s Most Compelling Holiday Windows 2016

Every holiday season, a handful of skilled display artists and visual storytellers conquer the windows on Fifth and Madison Avenues to sedate the glittery angst of holiday shopping with a pinch of an authentic narrative. Most shops choose to remain in the land of the average, but some boutiques decide to turn their windows into spectacular theater stages. I took a quick stroll Uptown to see what inspired display artists this year and to study the creative influences behind these sets.
