Dior’s Carousel of Dreams at Saks marks the retailer’s first exclusive collaboration with a luxury fashion house for its annual holiday initiative. The largest acquisition in Saks history took 10 months of planning by 100 artisans and involved designing and manufacturing objects in Italy for the Saks building and flying them to New York, hello eco planet.

Saks’ annual holiday celebration, which begins with its magnificent light show on Fifth Avenue, is one of the most anticipated, spectacular and enchanting in the world.

Marc Metrick, CEO of Saks, and Delphine Arnault, president and CEO of Dior, were introduced Monday evening at the unveiling in front of the flagship product.
