Dressing the Home


Gilles Mendel

Giambattsta Valli

Giambattsta Valli

Earlier in the year I read several good reviews of Dressing the Home: The Private Spaces of Top Fashion Designers. Of course I immediately put it on my “to buy” book list. Lucky for me I was able to snag it for a bargain this summer and the photos and content did not disappoint!

With New York Fashion Week fast approaching this seemed an appropriate post, not to mention that this book is now listed in the Amazon bargain book section.

Dressing the Home
looks inside the homes of more than twenty of today’s hottest fashion designers. A few designers include Christian Louboutin, Catherine Malandrino, Patrick Cox, Betsey Johnson, Diane von Furstenberg, as well as Dolce & Gabbana, who wrote the foreword.

I especially love the homes of both Gilles Mendel and Giambattista Valli. I suppose that would stand to reason, as I adore the clothes they design. If you love fashion and design I think you will love this book too.
