the mission

Barneys NY holiday displays are always a big affair, but when the Madison Ave store collaborated with Jay Z for Holiday 2013/14, Barneys knew it needed to create a truly unforgettable experience.

TDT worked with Barneys and renowned French visual artist Joanie Lemercier to create a stunning window display on the store exterior, plus an immersive projection mapping experience inside that created a store within a store environment. TDT also planned and executed the PR and communications strategy around the event, to ensure it had reach well beyond New York.
