a Variety Worldwide event
November 13 - December 31, 2014 -- Barneys New York
Co-Producer / Director

The 2014 holiday windows for Barneys New York, under the artistic direction of Baz Luhrmann, marked the brand’s first experience crafting a large-scale theatrical event that would live for six weeks inside their windows with daily performances featuring an ice skater, a pair of break dancing elves, and two opera singing queens performing Madonna in lavish gowns by Zaldy and Catherine Martin. The unveiling of the windows was marked by an outdoor performance spectacular that took over all of Madison Avenue, featuring a live performance by Pentatonix plus fifty ice skaters, drummers, dancers, actors, and musicians, performing under the direction of Baz Luhrmann and choreographer Jermaine Browne.

"Baz Dazzled” Holiday Dinner for Barneys & Bazmark
a Van Wyck and Variety Worldwide event
November 13, 2014 - Central Park Zoo

Co-Producer/Director

Following the unveiling of the 2014 Barneys New York holiday windows, celebrity guests including Anna Wintour and Dakota Fanning followed a military marching band from the store to the Central Park Zoo, where they were greeted by beautiful stilt walkers dressed as trees who danced around the sea lion pool. Inside, guests were served champagne by stilted snow queens and swept away into a secret snow globe speakeasy to sample hand-shaved boozy snow cones and to receive an intimate one-on-one performance by our opera singing Queens. Guests were later ushered into a lavish dinner where the a cappella group Pentatonix broke out into a “spontaneous” musical performance on top of one of the tables. Dinner was followed by dancing and ice luge vodka shots from a live-carved ice sculpture of a buxom elf.
