Singer and songwriter Lady Gaga co-designed the holiday season's window display at the luxury specialty retailer, Barney's on Madison Avenue. The window art, including "Gaga's Boudoir" which is made entirely of hair, was revealed just before midnight last Monday, November 21. Barney's creative director Dennis Freedman, who collaborated with the singer and fashion director Nicola Formichetti on the project, said, "The hair window is an extraordinary one. Basically, Gaga and Nicola had a dream of making her boudoir, with her in it, and every single thing in the window had to be made out of hair". Formichetti sketched a picture of Gaga lying down on a day bed surrounded by a cabinet, a mirror and a chair. From there, Freedman says the team, "literally created a room out of hair that is truly a work of art."
In addition to the Gaga window art, Barneys opened also last Monday its "Gaga Workshop", a spin on Santa's workshop. Some 5,550 square feet space at Barney's showcases clothes, jewelry and other items inspired by the singer for sale this holiday season. A portion of the sales will be donated to the Born This Way Foundation - a charity set up to help fight youth inequality.
