A retail display in New York will be designed by worldwide pop sensation Lady Gaga, who will create her own version of Santa’s Workshop for the Christmas period.
Gaga’s Workshop is set to go on show at Barneys New York from mid-November, with initial graphics advertising the spectacle featuring a cartoon of the singer dressed in a red jumpsuit and black heels with aqua-blue hair.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the shop’s window display will be designed by Gaga with her long-time fashion collaborator Nicola Formichetti, with a range of limited-edition items due to be created by the team and sold to raise money for charity.
It has yet to be revealed which charitable cause the controversial singer will choose, but the Herald Sun noted that a whole floor of the Madison Avenue shop will be devoted to Gaga’s creations and some will be sold online.
Since bursting on to the mainstream music scene in 2008 with her debut album The Fame, the performer and her creative team – known as the Haus of Gaga – have shown a knack for widespread media attention with their design choices, both in terms of her wardrobe and stage show design.
As well as Gaga and Formichetti, other artists due to contribute to the Christmas project alongside Barneys New York creative director Dennis Freedman are Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson.
