Break out the mascara and mantyhose! Gareth Pugh is ready to get his Liza Minnelli on.

The designer will perform a cabaret act in a short film for Selfridges' Fashion Film Project, Vogue U.K. reports.

The London luxury department store is celebrating the launch of its new Women's Designer Galleries by partnering filmmaker Ruth Hogben with top talents like Pugh (who is no doubt dusting off his bowler hat as we write this), Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton, and Ann Demeulemeester for a series of film shorts featuring a "strong female character."

In Pugh's case, only Liza will do.

"Ruth and I have worked on numerous film projects over the past few years, but this is the first time we have turned the camera on me," Pugh tells Vogue U.K.

"It's such an honor to have been asked to participate in this exhibition, so we wanted to create something together that was really special."

The films will be aired from March 15 to 26 at the Old Selfridges Hotel in London. Now get out there and show us those jazz hands, Gareth!
