Inside the most style obsessed place in the world.
Dreaming of a unique specialty store synonymous with fashionable, gracious living, Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel opened the first Saks Fifth Avenue in 1924 in what was then a primarily residential district of Manhattan along a stretch of upper 5th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets. By offering the finest quality men's and women's fashions and placing an emphasis on exceptional customer service, Saks Fifth Avenue would eventually become the byword for taste and elegance.
