Lady Gaga: Fashion icon, musical superstar, Queen of Christmas. Well, maybe not yet, but she's taking her first step in that direction, decorating the windows of Barneys this holiday season.
Starting in mid-November, "Gaga's Workshop will be brought to life throughout the fifth floor of the Men's Store and the store's iconic Madison Avenue windows," Barneys announced.
Gaga isn't just taking the reins on decor, but she's also designing a range of exclusive, small gift items, which will be sold in the workshop. Barneys will donate 25 percent of sales from all of those items to a charity of Gaga's choice.
"Lady Gaga is a rare cultural phenomenon, not only because of her exceptional talents as a singer, songwriter and performer, but also with regard to her support of equality and individuality and status as a fashion icon ... As a New York City landmark, we wanted to celebrate Lady Gaga as a fellow New Yorker and amazing talent," said Mark Lee, Barneys New York CEO.
