Around our office, Erica Choi is known as the super talented Digital Art Director who works with the team on making Barneys.com a beautiful place to shop. On Instagram, she’s better known as @eggcanvas, where she captures her world and all that inspires her via flawless #OOTDs, artful projects, and the prettiest of snacks. Choi has the detailed eye of a creative with years of luxury fashion, beauty, and lifestyle experience under her (designer) belt, so who better to launch our new series #InstaBarneys than the in-house Insta-star herself? Below, Erica takes us on a trip through the Barneys Madison Avenue store, highlighting all her favorite nooks, one glorious wall of Céline arm-candy, and the perfect savory Freds spread that simply beckoned for an iPhone close-up.

 “I could try something new at Freds everyday, and I’m sure I would love it. Every dish is absolutely scrumptious. Some seafood favorites: ahi tuna tartare, fried calamari, and lobster sandwich with their signature fries.”
