Is dressing a home the same as dressing a body? Dressing the Home attempts to answer that question, looking inside the homes of more than twenty of today’s hottest fashion designers and revealing them to be incredibly talented interior designers as well. The designers include Christian Louboutin, Catherine Malandrino, Patrick Cox, Betsey Johnson, and Diane von Furstenberg, as well as Dolce & Gabbana, who wrote the foreword.

Author Marie Bariller precedes each interview with a brief biographical note summarizing the designer’s career and signature style on the runway. Through Guillaume de Laubier’s photographs and the designers’ own words, the tone and décor of each home is revealed.

Perfect for both the fashion and interior design enthusiast, Dressing the Home shows that the talents behind the world’s most fashion-forward clothing and accessories have also created some of the world’s most lavish and intriguing interiors.
