“The moon is a planet, darling.” – Isaac Mizrahi.

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!
