Fashion designer Nanette Lepore's line is an expression of the woman behind it - eclectic, warm and whimsical. We were excited to take an inside look into her world with our column - A Possession Obsession. We weren't surprised when Lepore's possession was of the artistic persuasion; the designer is no doubt a worldly creative with the very best taste. Her treasure? A painting, done by her husband.
