Working for the Holidays: How Does a Christmas Window Production Director Do His Job?
For decades, strolling along New York City’s 5th Avenue during the holidays has meant being surrounded by the most magical window displays imagainable. And Spaeth Designs is part of the reason why.

Quinn has been helping design and produce window displays for Spaeth since 2000. He’s worked on projects for all the major windows including Bergdorf Goodman, Macy’s, Henri Bendel and Tiffany & Co. Quinn tells Jordan about his background in set design, the elaborate planning that goes into his displays and what it takes to stay excited about Christmas for 9 months out of the year.
