Few industries lend themselves as naturally to film as the fashion world, being as it is so full of beautiful clothing, eccentric personalities and mind-boggling excess. All three of these things are on prominent display in the trailer for director Matthew Miele’s upcoming documentary, “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s.”
It’s a very reverent affair, with Diane Von Furstenberg, Georgina Chapman, Karl
Lagerfeld, Oscar De La Renta, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs and Christian Louboutin being trotted out in front of the camera to talk about the American dream and the thrill of shopping. So if you’re into that, “Bergdorf’s” promises a pretty comprehensive overview of the titular Manhattan emporium. It’s also curiously narrated by character actor William Fichtner, taking a quick break from playing sordid police detectives to tell you about Bergdorf Goodman’s rise from a modest tailor shop in the 1890s to the capital of wealth and fashion it is today. eOne Films will release the film in New York on May 3rd with a nationwide expansion planned.
