London, (ANI): Scottish designer Rachael Barrett"s life changed after pop sensation Lady Gaga described the 25-year-old fashion graduate as “my favourite new designer".Less than a year ago Rachael was a struggling art student who could barely afford the trip home to her native Glasgow. But now, things have changed.
GaGa wore Barrett creations - which cost up to 1,000 pounds- in the video for last November"s number one hit Bad Romance and for Telephone. A Barrett dress also features in Lady Gaga"s current Monster Ball world tour, and the singer appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in another Barrett design.
“Rachael is my favourite new designer. Her innovation with latex, silhouette, and minimalism is refreshing, inspirational and promising for the future of fashion," GaGa told fashion magazine Dazed & Confused in an interview.
“It was absolutely wonderful when I discovered Lady Gaga would be wearing one of my dresses for the Bad Romance video. After graduating it was pretty rough, I had a tough summer hunting for freelance work, so for this to happen was a real surprise," expressed Barrett, who was voted “breakthrough designer of the year" at last November"s Scottish Style Awards.
