5 Creatives Share Their Amazing Closets

There are those days when, try as we might, it seems impossible to get out the door. Half of our clothes are on the floor — and the other half is on the bed, and we can't figure out what to wear (and where is that damned bootie). It's times like these, when we can't help but think: “If only my wardrobe was as impeccably organised as Mariah Carey’s on Cribs. Then — and only then — will my life have true meaning/be perfect/I will be able to leave the house with a good chance of at least wearing matching shoes.”
We know we’re not alone. And, it’s not an overstatement to say that a clutter-free, closely edited closet is the key to a better life. In this sartorial domain, it’s best to err on the side of OCD and completely embrace your inner neat freak. The ultimate goal? The kind of smugness that only comes from having polaroids of your shoes on the outside of the boxes.
We asked London’s neatest (and most stylish) ladies to open their wardrobes for us, and reveal the storage tips they swear by — from colour-coding to clever jewellry storage solutions. Oh, and there are drawer dividers galore. Ahead, advice from five women who have transformed their closets into works of organizational art, one velour hanger at a time.
