Designer Isaac Mizrahi delivered this instantly classic line yesterday on QVC, so why not revisit his career? See more Mizrahi on VFILES.com!
Despite his current focus on QVC, Isaac Mizrahi is more relevant than ever. Mizrahi’s classic ’90s looks of couture-casual, silk taffeta on a Sunday, a t-shirt with a ball skirt, were majorly brought back for both S/S and F/W ’11.
In 1987, at age 27, Mizrahi presented his first collection at Bergdorf Goodman to critical acclaim. Ironically, as he has since designed for Target, QVC, and Liz Claiborne, he promoted his designs as highly exclusive and specifically aimed them at an uptown, New York society clientele. Mizrahi’s style of American excess made rich women look fun, screamed color, and was always strewn with humorous undertones. The Isaac Mizrahi brand was markedly unpredictable, both in style and finance, and after creating the diffusion line, “IS**C,” the entire company closed temporarily.
But he’s back and still wearing a bandana! 2003 marked the return of his eponymous collection, and a return of playful—sometimes ridiculous—uptown delights: mink lined ball gowns, handbag hats, and hot pink poodles racing down the runway. Don’t forget to try the Isaac Mizrahi plaid cheesecake available exclusively at QVC!

Congrats to John Galliano on his return to the fashion world at Margiela today. We hope he won’t be quite as reclusive as the brand’s namesake, Martin Margiela, with whom we scored this RARE and EXCLUSIVE interview last April! Watch above.
Tomorrow is officially #MargielaMonday — John Galliano makes his return to women’s fashion after four years with an event in London to showcase the “Artisanal” range from Maison Martin Margiela.
The synthesis of Galliano and Margiela will be a truly special moment for fashion, but it’s sort of happened before! Above: Margiela S/S ’97 vs. Dior Couture by John Galliano, 2005.
