Clodagh has come full circle. Long before becoming an Interior Design Hall of Fame member, she started out, at age 17, as a couture fashion designer in her native Ireland. She returns to her sartorial roots with the debut of Hessnatur by Clodagh women's wear: shirt dresses, caftans, T-shirts, camisoles, and leggings, all in natural fibers. And she's not the only Hall of Fame member showing her fashionable side. Gisue and Mojgan Hariri's firm, Hariri & Hariri, has launched Kryptonite, a five-piece jewelry and accessories line for Swarovski. The sisters' crystal-studded ring even appeared on the finger of Hillary Scott, lead singer of the country group Lady Antebellum, as she accepted her 2011 Grammy Award.
Across the Atlantic, Matali Crasset has progressed from colorful interiors and furniture to cheeky jewelry, designing nine pendants, each signed and numbered, under the name Le Buisson. Jasper Morrison has a toehold in this trend, too-with his sporty Country sneaker for Camper. Perhaps he got a little guidance from his sister Miranda Morrison, cofounder of Sigerson Morrison.
