Nicola Formichetti To Pop-Up In New York For BOFFO

Nicola Formichetti, Creative Director for Mugler, Digital Pioneer and Lady Gaga's right-hand man (aka stylist) is to open a pop-up shop this September in New York City. 
Formichetti will participate in BOFFO's Building Fashion Design Competition, where a fashion designer collaborates with an architect who offers them a space in NYC for two weeks, where the two create a retail environment of the designer's choice. Formichetti's shop will open from September 1st - 14th and will include four separate rooms, each with their own theme. The first will have a natural theme, with Formichetti rumoured to be interested in having a flower shop inside, complete with a Japanese woman behind the counter offering manicures! The second will be a minimalist theme, with an art gallery installation which changes daily. The third will be a techno room (expect to see Gaga feature heavily!) and the fourth will be a punk rock vintage store, with Formichetti's muse, Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, behind the counter, obviously! 
Check out the video below, in which Formichetti discusses the pop-up shop (among other things) while a stuffed Triceratop toy sits beside him. No, before you ask, I don't know why. Maybe it was Gaga in her latest facial prosthetics.
