The New York native’s extreme outfits, ranging from the infamous meat dress at the MTV Video Music Awards to the egg capsule at the Grammys, have made headlines across the world.

A collection of Gaga’s Workshop gift items will raise money for a charity of her choice.

Campaign visuals, including a cartoon rendering of Gaga with long blue hair and a sparkly red jumpsuit, will be used to decorate shopping bags and other packaging, and will be featured on the company’s website.

Gaga’s “elves” will include artists Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson, and Nicola Formichetti, Gaga’s fashion director and designer of the label Thierry Mugler. They’ll work with Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman.

Barneys’ typically nontraditional windows are a popular stop for holiday shoppers. Previous displays featured characters from “Saturday Night Live” and the work of celebrity chefs.
