Neiman Marcus' 2008 Holiday Window Display

With help from local kids, Neiman Marcus creates unique and playful trees for their fanciful window displays.

  • Store vice-president Ignaz Gorischek asked local kids to design their fantasy trees for the Neiman Marcus' windows this year. The winner Jordan McNair's design is featured as the Neiman Marcus' 2008 Fantasy Tree, which is made of globes and recycling items, giving it the moniker of "The Clean Tree." The entire tree is constantly transforming as it spins and changes colors.
  • Third grader Richard Forgarty, who was born with only one hand, designs a tree called "Scottish Rite Rocks!" Made of crutches, wheelchairs, prosthetic hands and books, Forgarty's tree is an expression of his gratefulness for the gifts and care he receives at the hospital.
  • One student, who loves to draw, creates a tree made from 13 thousand pencils.
  • One of Neiman Marcus' windows displays the Faith and Earth trees. The Faith tree, where children play on clouds, is created by a seven-year-old girl, who is undergoing treatment in the Children's hospital. Made of stones and crystals, the Earth tree is designed by a nine-year-old who loves adventures and the great outdoors.
  • The Flag tree is made up of blue yarn and white stars. According to the child who designed it, this tree is like string art. © 2010 Scripps Networks, L.L.C. All rights reserved
