Saks Fifth Avenue and Disney are collaborating for the first time on a holiday experience! Disney and Saks will celebrate the season with a Snow White Window Display! On Monday, Nov. 20, Saks Fifth Avenue will debut its iconic New York holiday windows and 10-story-tall theatrical light show in true fairy tale fashion, and celebration of Snow White’s 80th Anniversary!
Sofia Carson who plays Evie (the daughter of the Evil Queen) in Disney’s “Descendants”, and Hollywood Records/Republic recording artist, will perform live at the unveiling event accompanied by a 40-person choir and appearances by Snow White, Snow Prince, and the seven dwarfs.
The spectacular new show, which will be titled Once Upon a Holiday, will also include the unveiling of 14 animated holiday window displays, presented by Mastercard! This will be the first time Saks will animate all of the windows along Fifth Avenue in its 94-year history.
“In all things we do at Saks, we strive to reach the people in a meaningful way that captures their emotions—it’s what we call the New Luxury. This comprehensive and unprecedented collaboration with Disney in our stores, on Saks.com, and in our New York flagship windows exemplifies that strategy by bringing the magic of the holiday season into the lives of our customers everywhere,” said Marc Metrick, President, Saks Fifth Avenue.
Highlights of the multi-faceted program include:
- SAKS NEW YORK HOLIDAY WINDOWS
The 14 Fifth Avenue windows will each depict a different scene from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, beautifully translating the iconic story into real-life delights. Vignettes will include Snow White dancing among woodland creatures, the seven dwarfs “heigh-ho!”-ing home from a day’s work in the diamond caves, and the Wicked Queen’s mischievous trickery with the infamous red apple. Also new to the windows this year is a 3D layering technique which incorporates original artwork from the film into the backdrops for each display.In Saks New York’s 49th Street and 50th Street windows, four legendary designers—Alberta Ferretti, Naeem Khan, Monique Lhuillier, and Marchesa—have created one-of-a-kind fairytale gowns for a 21st century Snow White. The luxury dresses will be set against a fantasy forest backdrop.
The New York window unveiling swill be live-streamed via Saks.com for audiences around the world to enjoy. The online event, presented by Mastercard, will take place on Monday, Nov. 20 at 6:45 p.m. ET. The window animation and light show will continue throughout the holiday season until Jan. 2, 2018.
