Isaac Mizrahi and Me

Isaac Mizrahi and Me


Isaac Mizrahi is a funny guy. Nice. Charming. Sense of humor. Loves fashion. Not afraid to turn a tote bag into a hat.

The curly-headed designer was in town Thursday for Daisy Days, the annual high fashion fundraiser for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. More than 640 ladies soaked in all that Mizrahi. He is the creative director for Liz Clairborne, but he is best known as the pioneer for democratizing fashion with his Target line that brought high end labels to the masses kicking off the chic can be cheap trend.

Mizahi's latest fashion advice? This year it's not about spending a lot of money, it's about choosing pieces that surprise. The best way to do that, Mizrahi said is with color and comfort. We like that idea. But we still aren't sure about the hats. For a more complete report, check out today's Philadelphia Inquirer.

Don't forget to set your DVR for Bravo's Project Runway replacement, The Fashion Show. The reality fashion show starts next Wednesday and stars Mizrahi, Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child and Fern Malils, vice president at IMG, the company that produces New York Fashion Week.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
