In honor of the second season’s premiere of ‘Once Upon A Time,’ which returns on Sunday, September 30, 2012, ABC and Bloomingdale’s teamed up to bring the experience to stores nationwide and to the famed window displays at its 59th Street flagship store in New York City To commemorate the windows’ unveiling, Jennifer Morrison — best known to her legions of fans as Emma Swan, Storybrooke’s reluctant heroine — was on hand to meet and greet with fans.
While fans eagerly awaited the opportunity to meet Morrison, they were treated to ‘Once Upon A Time’-inspired (read:primarily apple-based) hors d’oeuvre and drinks, along with other treats such as the cookie pictured below.
The windows themselves are filled mannequins posed as some of the show’s more popular characters from the first season, in vignettes inspired by iconic imagery from the series. Though the mannequins themselves look disturbingly nothing like the characters they represent, they are each dressed in clothes ‘from and evocative of’ the show. Labels on the windows identify each of the mannequins and which of the popular fashion designers featured at Bloomingdale’s dressed them.
