Isaac Mizrahi Opens First-of-Its-Kind Exhibition at The Jewish MuseumIsaac Mizrahi Opens First-of-Its-Kind Exhibition at The Jewish Museum
by BWW News Desk - Mar 23, 2016

Acclaimed fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi is being honored by The Jewish Museum with a retrospective exploring key trends in his work; from the use of color and prints, to witty designs that touch on issues of race, religion, class, and politics. The show, entitled An Unruly History, explores key trends in Mizrahi's provocative style as designer, artist and entrepreneur which have taken him on a spirited journey in the fashion arena. Most notably, his designs often unite opposites like Western-wear infused handmade lace, Adidas sneakers in place of high heels, handbags worn as hats, or humble cotton undershirts paired with floor-length taffeta skirts. The core of the dramatic installation features 50 looks from the designer's clothing label (1987-1998), the 'semi-couture' collections (2003-2011) and his trailblazing line for Target. (more...)
