Supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s wardrobe was overflowing with her designer outfits – so the beauty converted an aircraft hangar into an enormous closet.
The 38-year-old has enjoyed almost two decades in the fashion industry, with designers queueing up to hand her free clothes.
The German-born star soon ran out of space in her luxurious $7 million home – but instead of clearing out her closet, Schiffer decided to convert an unused helicopter hangar in the grounds of the property.
She says, “I’ve kept all my clothes. I have a hangar that is normally made for helicopters and I’ve got all my clothes in there. The heli-hangar was (husband) Matthew’s (Vaughn’s) idea. I have so many closets of Chanel in there, it’s like a Chanel boutique.’
A source tells Britain’s Mail on Sunday, “It’s just like an Aladdin’s cave. It’s an extraordinary collection of clothes and there are some fantastic items in there. There are things she’s bought and things she’s been given.
“It’s not all colour-coded or arranged like a big archive. Some people expect it to be like a high-class boutique inside and it’s not really like that at all.”
well, at least she’s got them color-coded and arranged neatly.
