A tribute to the visionary American fashion designer, performer and entrepreneur Isaac Mizrahi, who is releasing his new book I.M.: A Memoir today – and for whom I am very fortunate to have worked for. Featuring some of his most iconic designs – often uniting opposites: evening and sportswear; formal and casual; couture and mass market – with his unique position at the intersection of high style and popular culture.

The mixed use of natural and synthetic, high-end and mass-market fabrics is a striking feature of Isaac’s work. Kitchen Sink Pink is a cascade of shades in a rosy palette, inspired by the pink neon sculptures of Dan Flavin.

Workhorse elevator padding used by movers inspired Mizrahi. He appropriated the quilting technique, but elevated the shipping blanket in a patchwork of blue, green, gray and silver silk. The bodice was shaped from grosgrain ribbons, using heat molding.

Extreme Kilt, Fall 1989

“Everyone I admire has done a tartan collection: Perry Ellis, Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood. I tried to do this without taking it too seriously.” Isaac’s visual pun converts the Scottish kilt into a strapless floor-length gown, with buckles repeated up to the bustline.

The Coke can makes an improbable appearance on the runway: Mizrahi used an elaborate process to create these custom paillettes from real Coca-Cola cans. He worked with the charity We Can, which employed homeless New Yorkers to collect cans to recycle; these were shipped to the sequin-maker Langlois-Martin in Paris, where they were cut into paillettes that were then sent to India to be sewn onto dresses. The result is a high-fashion, nearly weightless modern take on a ubiquitous American icon

This dress reveals its exoskeleton with exposed ribbing in the bodice, horsehair interfacing at the bustline and grosgrain at the waist. The “dead rose”-color satin was inspired by a gown worn by Deborah Kerr in the musical film The King and I. Isaac sent the movie to the textile house in Italy to have the color perfectly matched.
