Every single year, I anxiously await the unveiling of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. For as long as I can remember, I stare at the catalog and dream of being able to “win” each out-of-this world package that the store has put together. Some years have wowed me more than others, and while the overall offerings this year are not my favorite to date, I would be totally smitten with the Dream Folly Fantasy Gift.

Blame it on the extravagant engagement party we witnessed for Pandora on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but who doesn’t want an 18-foot-diameter yurt filled with the most luxurious and inviting linens? (more…)

Just this weekend, I was sitting at home, going through some mail from earlier in the week and came across the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. As I flipped through the pages, I couldn’t help but ask myself how certain designers are selected for a holiday book like this. I mean, clearly, there is no way each line available at the store can be featured, so, how is one designer chosen over the next? When I looked at the handbags, they all had one thing in common, they are gorgeous. Sure, some I could pull off better than others, but that’s always the case. Either way, whoever selected the handbags, did a stellar job. Yes, I found that most of the handbags featured were high end designers like Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel, Prada and Valentino. But then I flipped over the next few pages and saw some of our Savvy brands like Cole Hann and Kooba. Help me out here, as a designer, how would do you think you could be chosen to grace the pages of something like the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book?
