High fashion is coming home with a new collaboration between Lowe’s and New York Fashion Week. 

The home improvement store has paired up with three of fashion’s biggest names — Christian Siriano, Rebecca Minkoff and Jason Wu — to show how fashion and interior design are uniquely intertwined. 

Each designer handpicked a collection of home decor items from Lowe’s that they will be using to style their NYFW runway shows later this month, curating an “edit” of products that speak to them and their personal aesthetic.
