Having strutted down the catwalks of every internationally renowned fashion house for 30 years, it would seem that Iman has done it all. But now the graceful beauty brings her style skills to a new facet of design. The iconic model has launched Iman Home, an elegant, exotic fabric collection inspired by global culture, contemporary design, and, no doubt, Iman's Somalian heritage. The textiles are available at Calico Corners online and Calico Home stores across the country and coming soon to the style setter's own website and select retailers. Checking out at $25-$55/yard, the designer fabrics are quite affordable and actually on sale for 15 percent off or more at Calico now through Sept. 25!
To celebrate the launch, this week Iman has teamed up with design consultant Carlos Mota to design the VIP Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge at New York Fashion Week, which features her fabrics as well worldly elements like African stools and photographs by fashion greats Bruce Weber and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. "Since I stopped modeling, got married, and had a daughter, home has become a passion of mine," she told WWD. "The gods of the interior decoration must have been looking down on me, because all of a sudden, here was this great opportunity to create the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge."
