Designer Spotlight: Todd Oldham

Todd Oldham got his start stitching dresses together from pillowcases at age 15, and progressed to designing elaborate gowns for Hollywood stars like Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon. He was, for 15-some-odd years, a fixture in fashion, even hosting a segment called "Todd Time" on MTV's House of Style in the '90s, which focused on America's growing fascination with fashion and the lives of supermodels. Oldham made his segue from the runway to the living room by creating a home and dorm room collection for Target in 2003, and also a line of furniture and accessories for the messiah of recliners, La-Z-Boy, both of which reflect his desire to make smart design accessible to a mass market.

Nowadays, you can see Oldham on Bravo TV as a host of Top Design, delivering challenges and inspiring the designers to be the most creative and original, and he was named the creative director of Old Navy last month. Oldham has also taken his pen to the page, sharing his passion for mid-century modern homes with over 52 do-it-yourself projects, as the author of Handmade Modern. He also designed The Hotel and The Fairfax Hotel in South Beach, Miami. As you can see, Oldham's career has developed to include all areas of design, from interior design, film, and photography, to furniture and graphic art. I can't imagine what's next!
