Summary, etc.: Beginning with Isaac Mizrahi's first fashion collection, which debuted to critical acclaim in 1986, and running though the present day, this stylish, lavishly illustrated book presents his signature couture collections. Mizrahi's exuberant couture style is classic American, inventively reimagined. He pioneered the concept of "high/low" in fashion, and was the first high-end fashion designer to create an accessibly priced mass-market line. Mizrahi approached other complex issues through his designs, as well--mixing questions of beauty and taste with those of race, religion, class, and politics. Although Mizrahi (b. 1961) is best known for his clothing, his work in theater, film, and television is also explored. The result is a spirited discourse on high versus low, modern glamour, and contemporary culture. Three essayists discuss Mizrahi's place in fashion history, his close connection to contemporary art, and the performative nature of his designs. New photography brings Mizrahi's fashions to life, and an interview with the artist offers an intimate perspective on his kaleidoscopic work in diverse media.
