“Where do Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, and others relax after the chaos of Fashion Week? With the CFDA, we present an intimate look into the private quarters of over 100 top designers. Explore eclectic homes from tiny one-bedrooms to sprawling estates…”
American Fashion Designers at Home offers an intimate look into the private quarters of more than 100 members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America—including Diane von Furstenburg, Cynthia Rowley, Kate Spade, Bob Mackie, Johnson Hartig, and Derek Lam—and offers a stunning photographic tour of the domestic side of fashion.
Explore eclectic domiciles from the minimal chic to the bold and exotic, from compact one-bedrooms to sprawling estates, and discover how designers’ dwellings often become extensions of their métier:
Find Carolina Herrera’s classic elegance also woven into her Louis XV–influenced New York apartment and Betsey Johnson’s trademark pink and girly glamour mirrored in her sumptuous, flower-filled flat. Be a guest in the home of Tommy Hilfiger, whose preppy aesthetic softens in his cozy “Adirondack room,” featuring a fireplace and repurposed beams from a Vermont barn, or take off to Donna Karan’s tranquil villa in the Turks and Caicos Islands, complete with eco-friendly architecture and yoga pavilion.
This collectible book—a one-of-a-kind sneak peek into the lives of CFDA stars—reveals that fashion’s most creative minds also take their work home them.
The book is priced at $65.
