Fashion Designers Pivot to Interior Design

In just three short years, Bessie Afnaim Corral and Oliver Corral had achieved what many young designers only dream of. By February 2020, their label, Arjé, known and beloved for its trophy-status shearling jackets and coats, was being carried by every major retailer, from Net-A-Porter to Selfridges. Then the first wave of Covid-19 lockdowns hit. No one was shopping for clothes, let alone a $3,000 shearling; everyone was stuck at home.

Lisa Fernandez, 47, was arrested on Tuesday for her involvement in the death of 38-year-old Marja McClendon of St. Louis, Missouri, who died days after her appointment with Fernandez at her apartment in 2018.
