Gaga’s Workshop at Barneys New York

New York City’s fanciest Fifth Avenue department stores take a populist turn every December and become something for everyone, regardless of budget limitations with the ornate store window displays that are integral to the city’s holiday cheer. Outsiders and insiders pass the windows for weeks after they are unveiled, always to great excitement, and appreciate them for the fashion-centric public art displays they are.

This year Barneys took the holiday season as a chance to create something a bit different and solicited a partnership from Lady Gaga to create the temporary Gaga’s Workshop at the flagship Barneys on Fifth Avenue. The section is Gaga’s interpretation of Santa’s Workshop, according to the official site, and all the tchotchkes, which are affordable, are Gaga-inspired and approved. When Tara and I finally reunited for a weekend in New York, I was in full tourist holiday mode and had to see the commercial shrine to Gaga. Below are some photos I snapped during our visit. If you’re intrigued, the workshop is open until the New Year!
