Barney’s New York for the first time will convert an entire floor of its Madison Avenue flagship for the holiday initiative. A statement read that “starting in mid-November, Gaga’s workshop will be brought to life through the fifth floor of the Men’s store and the store’s iconic Madison Avenue Windows”

Gaga who is also a designer will design a range of “exclusive, small gift items” to be sold at the workshop. “In the spirit of the holiday season, “Barneys New York will donate twenty five per cent of all proceeds from sales to a charity of Gaga’s choice. The gesture is really noble and for sure Lady gaga will help out other needy people.

The album reached number one on the record charts of six countries, topped Billboard Dance/ Electronic Albums chart while simultaneously peaking at number two on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States and accomplished positions within the top ten worldwide. Achieving similar worldwide success, the fame monster (2009), produced a further three global chart – topping singles namely: “Bad Romance”, “Telephone” and “Alejandro” and allowed her to embark on her second global concert tour, “The monster Ball Tour”.

“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,” Mark Lee, Barneys New York CEO, explained. “Partnering with her in this unprecedented collaborative way to create the largest most all-encompassing holiday theme that Barneys has ever mounted Is a thrill. As a New York city landmark, we wanted to celebrate Lady Gaga as a fellow New Yorker and amazing talent.” I totally agree with mark, Gaga is definitely going to deliver.
