All Barneys wants for Christmas is some Bad Romance.
Come mid-November, an entire floor of the Madison Avenue Barneys department store will be transformed into Gaga’s Workshop — basically, Santa’s Workshop minus the toys and cuteness, plus some glammed-out merchandise and the performer’s signature crazy.
With Gaga’s presence extending to the retailer’s signature storefront windows and bags, it’s probably safe to say that holiday shopping will never again look so baller. But it’s not all about appearances — 25 percent of the Gaga’s Workshop sales will go to a charity of the songstress’ choice. For the Gaga-obsessed among you, start planning your pilgrimage now. This’ll be a holiday experience to tell the grandkids about (well, maybe not, if Gaga’s bloody meat outfit is part of the decor …).
