   “People who take fashion seriously are idiots!“- Joan Rivers   Thus is spake the truth, if only for a brief moment. This is one of the numerous quick-cut quotes from famous folk and fashion insiders who all worship at the hallowed shrine to Fashion, Bergdorf-Goodman, in an indulgent (in the Catholic sense) valentine to the iconic emporium directed by former composer and literary agent (?)

Behind The Candelabra: What’s Behind The Curtain Behind The Candelabra
