As a New York City landmark, we wanted to celebrate Lady Gaga as a fellow New Yorker and amazing talent."

Barneys will bring  together  Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson of Assume Vivid Astro Focus (AVAF), and Mugler creative director and Lady Gaga fashion director, Nicola Formichetti, to create Lady Gaga's interpretation of a Santa's Workshop at its store.
