On November 14th, Barneys New York unveiled their 2012 holiday campaign, the Electric Holiday film in collaboration with Disney and will decorate its Madison Avenue flagship store windows in 3-D lights! Brought to life by the brilliant minds at the Walt Disney Company (with a helping hand from AOL, Air France and Christie MicroTiles), the film offers a peek at the high-fashion world through the eyes of the ever-stylish Minnie Mouse.

Watch as Minnie travel to the world of Haute Couture on a fantastical fashion adventure in Paris, where she was personally dressed by the head designer of Lanvin Alber Elbaz and sashay down the runway and rubs elbows with fashion-world figures like supermodel Linda Evangelista & Naomi Campbell, Heiress Daphne Guinness, pop star Lady Gaga and many more.
