Designer Digs: The Accommodation Worthy of Iconic Designers

Designer Digs: The Accommodation Worthy of Iconic Designers

From New York to Paris, Milan to Sydney, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is here!

By Candice Jackson | 17th May 2016

Do you live for fashion? Now you can live in it too – literally!

To celebrate this year’s MBFWA, Airbnb has pulled together a runway-ready list of Australian properties inspired by some of the most iconic designers set to show from May 15 to May 20 2016. If you’re missing out on MBFWA, you can relive the designer’s art when you stay in one of these stunning locations.

Because life imitates art, right? Or art imitates art.

Designer: Romance Was Born | Property: Pink Lady Studio


The Pink Lady Studio in Petersham, New South Wales, offers a big, bright space with city skyline views. When you place their biggest mural side-by-side with Romance Was Born’s MBFWA 2013 “Magic Mushroom” three-piece, it’s like it was meant to be! You can stay in this stylish abode from $95 per night for two guests, which makes it the cheapest stay of all the listings.

Designer: Camilla | Property:  Enchanted Cave


The Camilla range, including this signature multi-coloured kaftan by Camilla Spring/Summer 2015, is known for its luxurious bohemian style. Tucked away in the New South Wales Blue Mountains, this luxe cave will leave you feeling like you’ve stepped into another world. One night in this enchanted Hobbit-like cave will set you back $1100 per night for two guests.

Designer: Toni Matičevski | Property: Restored 1880s Church

This textured silver midi dress from Toni Matičevski’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is a perfect fit for the charming New South Wales restored church. Set on an acre of land and surrounded by gardens, this property is $290 per night for up to five guests.

Designer: By Johnny | Property: Treehouse Retreat


This colour-blocked midi dress from the By Johnny Spring/Summer 2015 collection showcases the label’s appreciation for creating items that are unique with a modern edge. And what could be more unique and effortlessly chic than a minimalist treehouse retreat? This Queensland treehouse is available from $191 per night for two guests.

Designer: Bec and Bridge | Property: 1930s Art Deco Retreat


If you love Bec and Bridge’s outfits, including this metallic silver cami and black sequined pant by from their Spring/Summer 2015 collection, there’s no doubt you’ll love this Villa Margaret designer retreat at Tamborine Mountain in Queensland. The Sydney-based label is known for elegant lines and chic silhouettes, and this retreat is definitely a haven for travellers in search of cool mountain air. This retreat can be rented from $750 per night for up to eight guests.

Designer: Oscar de la Renta | Property: Artist’s House


Handcrafted by a well-known local artist, this enchanting property in New South Wales’ Bundanoon offers a very special and unique couple getaway. Much like the work of Oscar de la Renta, it exudes charm and a unique sense of character. A stay in this artist’s house is available from $101 per night for up to seven guests; however, it’s suggested for use as a couple retreat for one or two couples at a time.

Designer: We Are Handsome | Property: Rustic Earth Home

This printed swimwear and activewear jacket from the We Are Handsome Spring/Summer 2015 collection shares the same hyper-abstract and expressionist style as this rustic earth home in New South Wales’ Blue Mountains. The “Shouse” has become popular as a meditation and yoga retreat, and the property also has its own creek and waterfall perfect for cooling off in summer. You can stay here from $101 per night for up to seven guests.
