Regarded as the “eyes o Bergdorf Goodmanf, Linda Fargo is responsible for shaping the visual identity of the legendary New York department store in her role as senior vice president of the fashion office and store presentation. A fine arts graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, her first job was as a window dresser at Macy’s in New York, eventually rising to become visual director.
Fargo has been with Bergdorf Goodman since 1996, when she was hired as visual director of the women’s store. Since joining New York fashion destination Bergdorf Goodman 20 years ago, she’s gone from designing their windows to directing women’s fashion, and along the way becoming a personality (thanks to the 2013 documentary Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s) and a street-style star. With her switched-on wardrobe and sharp silver bob, Fargo has become a poster girl for the “greynaissance”, one of a handful of women challenging what life after 40 looks like.
