For the fashion designers whose homes are featured in this book, being creative is more than a career, it’s a deep-seated need that has no bounds. An eye for exquisite detail in the studio transforms their living spaces into both a haven and a muse.

As boldly individual as the designers who call them home, the spaces here cross six countries and represent thirteen different architectural styles spanning more than five hundred years, from a 14th-century Italian palace to a 21st-century renovation in the English countryside. They range in size from one-bedroom flats and compact country cottages to mansions, villas and palazzos. Step into the varied worlds within these pages, each one a window into the soul of the creator, and an endless source of inspiration for creative living.
