Dello Russo was interested in fashion from a young age and remembers asking her father for “one set of Fendi" when she was 12 years old. The set, which included a handbag, scarf, umbrella, tissue holder, wallet and keychain, triggered her obsession of collecting fashion. Dello Russo has been an avid collector of fashion and jewelry since then. She owns two apartments next door to each other; one is her home and the other is her closet. As of 2010, Dello Russo had over 4,000 pairs of shoes. In 1996, Dello Russo was married for a little over a month before getting a divorce. She claims she and her husband separated over her not leaving any space in their closets for his items.
