If you speak fashion, then Barneys is a name to be uttered with reverence. Founded in 1923 by Barney Pressman, Barneys embraces a well-earned reputation as a purveyor of …high-end designer brands. While there are locations across the country and a website, a trip to its flagship store on Madison Avenue in Manhattan is an excursion no fashionista can resist. It’s no coincidence that Barneys has made memorable guest appearances in the shows "Friends," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and, of course, "Sex and the City," as well as being the place Becky Bloomwood worked as a personal shopper in the book "Shopaholic Takes Manhattan." Although no longer a family-owned business, Barneys is still the ultimate destination for apparel, cosmetics and home décor for those seeking taste, luxury and humor. As Sarah Jessica Parker has famously said, shopping at Barneys is the “decadent reward” we get for being nice and working hard.
