Inside Lady Gaga’s Crazy Holiday Workshop

You don’t have to love Lady Gaga or her music to appreciate her crazy new holiday workshop that’s now at Barneys New York flagship on Madison Avenue. (Just look at those sculptures!) For this unprecedented project, Barneys worked closely with Lady Gaga and stylist Nicola Formichetti to design a range of special editions items which are only available for a limited time at Gaga’s Workshop. I just saw the spectacle yesterday and I’ve got to say that even just walking around the workshop is a fun and fabulous experience.

One entire floor in Barneys New York has been converted to hold all of these Gaga-inspired products from a Gaga face cookie to fingerless moto gloves with spikes and studding. There are even handmade press on nails, designed and created by Naomi Yasuda, one of Lady Gaga’s nail artists. If you’re all about shaking up tradition, you can pick up an avant garde boot stocking modeled after Gaga’s iconic 10 inch platform heel-less boots! Of course, if you just want something a little bit tamer, you can snatch up one of Gaga’s favorite books, which includes Matilda and James and the Giant Peach, wrapped in specially designed book covers.

“It’s a ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ moment,” Gaga said. “We wanted it all to be whimsical and fun, with a sense of art and fashion.”

Though the items are a bit pricey, you’ll be happy to know that Barneys New York is donating 25% of sales from all items in Gaga’s Workshop to the anti-bullying Born This Way Foundation. You can see the workshop from now till January 2, 2012.
