— Why do you want to be the face of 5F?
I believe I would be the ideal face of 5F because of my youth, enthusiasm and deep admiration for Bergdorf Goodman. As a multi-racial individual I believe I represent a lot of people who idealize and love Bergdorf Goodman, but aren’t necessarily represented there or feel as if it is unattainable. As a native New Yorker, Bergdorf Goodman has always been an iconic and special place for me. Growing up as an only child I would visit Bergdorf frequently with my grandmother, take the escalator up to the fifth floor with youthful anticipation and browse the clothes, accessories and handbags for hours. From the exotic fragrances on the beauty basement level to the exciting jewels on the first floor and salon shoes on the second floor, I know Bergdorf and understand its mission and vision clearly. That is what sets me apart from a lot of the other contestants and that is why I want to be the face of 5F -to show the world the playful and trendy side of the world’s most glamorous department store.
