When it comes to Hollywood glamour, the designers who create it best are Badgley Mischka. Their clothes are designed in the most sophisticated silhouettes and the finest fabrics. Mark Badgley and James Mischka have been hailed by Vogue as two of the top ten American designers. During the past decades, they are also known as the darlings of the Hollywood set. The dynamic team continues to make their mark with glamorous, stylish accessories and wearable evening wear. At their spring/summer ’19 NYFW previews, the look was elegant and effortless. “One zip and you’re glamorous!” said Badgely.
These two designers met while studying at Parsons School of Design. They share a unique synergy and a similar aesthetic about clothes and the way people dress. Before starting their own brand, both men spent time designing for leading brands. Badgley worked for Donna Karan; Mischka did a stint with WilliWear Willi Smith’s men’s collection.
They joined forces in 1988, and they have captivated audiences ever since. With their sophisticated line, they cater to a younger, more modern customer, without forsaking women of age. Badgley Mischka has remained true to their design philosophy. Their designs are timeless. Their clothes are usually spotted on Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Jennifer Garner, Sharon Stone, Sarah Jessica Parker, Helen Miren and Madonna, just to name a few.
Badgley Mischka’s designs are constructed of the finest fabrics and superior craftsmanship. There is always an element of interest, either in their silhouettes or with luxurious details. They have remained true to this design philosophy. The consistent integrity of their collections have pushed them into the forefront of fashion. “Our style harks back to glamorous Hollywood of the ’40s,” boasted Mischka. “The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant.”
It’s fabulous if you can spend hours getting ready, but a woman should also be able to bring a dressto work and change there for an evening out. Badgley Mischka is available at the most prestigious stores, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, in addition to the Badgley Mischka’s flagship boutique in Beverly Hills.
