Nieman Marcus Holiday Windows!

This years Neiman Marcus holiday windows reach a new dimension with stars, robots, chimp astronauts and a climbing tube that stretches outside and over the sidewalk. The festive downtown display, which was the concept of VP of store development Ignaz Gorischek, was assembled with the help of some of Independent Artists' very own production assistants.

The theme for this year is "Big Encounters of the Little Kind", which allows children ages 4-10 to crawl through the window display with monitors placed inside to capture the actions of the climbers. "And this has never really been done anywhere before," said Gorischeck, "You've never been able to go into a show window before this. The other full interactive thing that adults will enjoy is that you can text into the windows, and control some special effects in the windows as well, so even when there aren't kids in the windows, it's still very interactive."
