As runways were being assembled for the launch of Fashion Week at Lincoln Center the other day, fashion designer Elie Tahari was three blocks away in a glass-walled condominium on the Hudson River looking over an installation of mid-century furniture and textured grass-cloth wallpaper.

Down the hall, Diane Von Furstenberg, another big name in the fashion industry, was working on transforming a sprawling living room with river views into a complete studio apartment with a wavy striped brown-and-white rug, and a bedroom area just big enough to showcase her new designer collection of sheets and towels.

While the models prepare to strut at Lincoln Center, a group of fashion designers working with interior decorators have taken over five riverview apartments at the Aldyn, a new glass-walled condominium nearing completion on Riverside Boulevard and West 63rd Street, and redesigned them.

Nobody believes this to be truer than Melbourne-based stylist Bernadette Ferrari – who takes note of what designers unveil from one season to the next, drawing from their sassy, playful and inspirational collections each and every time.

A long-time favourite of French magazine editors, Isabel Marant delivered a stunning collection for spring/summer 2010. It was an edgy mix of sterling silvers, rustic browns, splashes of orange and faded denim. She threw in fur sleeveless jackets for a bohemian touch, while the rest of the range was all about fine details including feather earrings, striped shorts, suede fringe boots and all things 1970s.

Ferrari has used Marant’s collection to create a lounge room inspired by the French rising star, and we love the shabby-chic end result.
