Lady Gaga opens Gaga's Workshop at Barneys New York
Gaga’s Workshop at Barneys New York opened at midnight last night, and the store was still buzzing this afternoon as fans from all walks of life — teens with their parents, businessmen in three-piece suits, and even a few sexagenarians — checked out Lady Gaga’s latest enterprise, a Christmas display in the iconic store’s Upper East Side flagship.
From the minute you walk in the door, the workshop is an assault of candy-colored craziness from floor to ceiling.

It may be a bit Tim-Burton-shrouded-in-cotton-candy chic, but every inch of the 5,500-square-foot space is pure Gaga, from the wig-shaped boudoir to colorful snake statues that double as clothing racks. “We wanted it all to be whimsical and fun, with a sense of art and fashion,” said Gaga, who designed the shop with stylist Nicola Formichetti.

There’s something for everyone at Gaga’s Workshop. Does your toddler need a studded leather jacket? Perhaps you fancy a candy ring with which you could impale someone in a pinch? Gaga’s got you covered. Do you have a sweet tooth, but also a passion for Alexander McQueen shoes? Pick up a 30-ounce chocolate shoe for just $95.

Gaga has long been in your hearts and minds. Now, in cookie form, she can be in your stomach, too!
The shop also sells stuffed animals, books Gaga read in her childhood, and an exclusive jewelry line, a collaboration with Erickson Beamon, which donates 25 percent of all sales to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. Not everything is for purchase, including a showcase of Gaga’s signature looks like her gravity defying footwear, Mickey Mouse-shaped sunglasses, and spike bedecked accessories.
Gaga’s Workshop is open through Jan. 2, 2012.
