The Homes That Inspire Fashion Week – Real Estate for Sale in Santa Monica

Posted by admin Posted in Uncategorized

From sleek and styled to bright and eclectic, the homes of fashion designers are just as stunning as their collections. In honor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, we’re looking beyond the glitz and glam of the runway to the homes of fashion’s biggest names.


Vera Wang

Beloved by celebrities for her princess-perfect wedding gowns, Vera Wang is no stranger to Fashion Week. The 2005 “Womenswear Designer of the Year” winner has been on the forefront of fashion’s most elegant collections for years.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the native New Yorker has been spending more time in Los Angeles and decided to purchase a mid-century modern house in star-studded Trousdale Estates for a reported $ 10 million. The home was once owned by Burt Reynolds and was completely renovated top-to-bottom by celebrity designer Steve Hermann. Sleek and modern, the home features views nearly as stunning as Wang’s gowns.

Jenna Lyons

As the creative director of J.Crew, Jenna Lyons is credited as the visionary responsible turning the brand from preppy basics to oh-so-chic earning endorsements from the First Lady herself.  Lyons’ Park Slope townhouse radiates with the same high-end design aesthetic.

Stunning in its simplicity, Lyons’ townhouse has been the darling of shelter magazines and interior design blogs alike.  Purchased by Lyons and her estranged husband, artist Vincent Mazeau in 2004 for $ 1,308,000, they knocked it back to the studs for a delicious remodel. The couple is reportedly headed for divorce, so the beautiful home was recently listed on the Brooklyn real estate market with a $ 3.75 million price tag.

Nina Garcia

Marie Claire magazine fashion director Nina Garcia is better known as the “Señora Don’t Bore Me” judge on the hit Bravo reality show “Project Runway.”

Back in 2010, Garcia sold her sprawling apartment on the New York real estate market for a whopping $ 8.5 million. Located but a few Manolo Blahnik steps from the retail haven of Madison Avenue, Garcia’s two-unit co-op home is everything one would expect from the stern fashion editor. The home is stylish, but elegant with dramatic 11.5-foot ceilings, picture windows, a master suite with two humongous dressing rooms, library, staff room and adjoining dining and living rooms that are separated by double pocket doors.

Lauren Conrad

The down-to-earth and likeable star of “The Hills” started her fashion career as an intern at Teen Vogue, and now Lauren “LC” Conrad is also a budding fashion designer. She’s taken a break from her reality lifestyle to launch her clothing lines, one which is sold at Kohl’s.

From the looks of it, Conrad is trying to fully put her reality television days behind her by listing her home for $ 2.25 million on the Hollywood real estate market. Conrad’s home was where the hit TV show “The Hills” was filmed. The 3,000-square foot property was completely renovated and updated, and includes refinished hardwood floors throughout and a custom kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances.

Donald J. Pliner

Visionary designer Donald J Pliner launched his line of luxury footwear and accessories in 1989, and immediately established a reputation for innovative design and high style for both men and women.

If Pliner’s shoes are made for walking, his Moroccan-style home is made for living. Painted in bold blues and magenta and outfitted with Southwestern, African, and Balinese-influenced decor, Pliner’s estate (below) is currently listed on the Miami Beach real estate market for $ 22.5 million.

The mid-century modern features floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, providing plenty of natural light and sunshine. Listed on the Los Angeles real estate market for $ 3.75 million, the home is available furnished or unfurnished.
