The Barneys New York window display is an iconic symbol of the holiday season. The world famous director and production design team, Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin collaborated with Barneys to create an extravagant window display that included LIVE entertainers. The “BazDazzled” holiday shop and window displays kicked off with singers, dancers, elves, a drum-line, royal attendants, and skaters inside the windows and outside on Madison Avenue. With guidance from Baz, Catherine, as well as the costume designers, Zaldy and Plume, I designed the makeup for the performers which included CHANEL Rouge Allure lipsticks, Aqualumiere Foundation, and my own custom appliques made of metallic lace, rhinestones, chrome, paillettes, studs, glitter, elf ears, and much more.
