Isaac Mizrahi: The Quintessential New York Designer & His Legendary Looks
Isaac Mizrahi, the iconic and quintessential New York designer is the subject of 'Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History' currently on view at The Jewish Museum. The exhibit which isn't a retrospective, but more of a check-in, walks us through some of his best design moments. A rainbow-drenched visual spectacle, museum-goers are treated to some of his most fabulous runway frocks and dazzling theatre costumes from his Broadway career. The Brooklyn native took the New York fashion world by storm in the late '80s with his namesake line and evolved into a cultural connoisseur through unconventional and game-changing career choices. From starring in the notorious fashion doc 'Unzipped', being a pioneer designer to partner with Target in the 2000s, hosting his eponymous talk show, giving fashion crits on 'Project Runway', and headlining his current QVC show 'Isaac Mizrahi Live'. From start to finish the exhibit serves as a true lesson in fashion history on how not to follow the rules but blaze your own trail.
Catch the final weeks of 'Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History' at The Jewish Museum on view through August 7, 2016.
