Gaga came to town and took over Barneys New York last week. The men’s fifth floor [all 5500-square feet] has been transformed into Gaga’s Workshop for the holidays. As a Golden Ticket winner, I was invited to the launch party at the Madison Avenue store last week for a special treat:

Oh, and Gaga walked past me and her hand and custom Chanel ensemble grazed my hand. No joke, crazy.

Barneys will continue to donate 25% of all sales of items from Gaga’s Workshop to the Born This Way Foundation, an organization created by Lady Gaga and her mother that focuses on youth empowerment and equality by addressing issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development. The best part? It will utilize digital mobilization as one of the means to create positive change. Fashion + giving back +¬†innovation = change.
