At some night talk show host Isaac Mizrahi, one of the most famous and expensive of American fashion, some guest aunt told him that on it - his clothes. He was not particularly surprised or moved by.

The question will be about a man really unusual.

For there, he is known along with Gaultier, Kenzo, and dozens of first-magnitude stars.

There are several Jewish boys, who for 30 years making great strides. But Mizrahi is not concerned. His story of success - a typical American, and Mizrahi, with his Brooklyn accent and a good education for the common good Jewish boy - a typical New Yorker. Mizrahi is very similar to the ideal. Judge for yourself - beautiful, expansive, indefatigable, intelligent, rich, well-educated. He has an army of friends who adore him, and his range of interests. Circle, which is more suited to some wealthy scion of an ancient aristocratic English family name: Bridge, Bach and Ballet.
Mizrahi, Vogue magazine singled out as one of the representatives of the establishment of a new world of fashion, making a bet on the fact that in the beginning of the millennium his name is on everyone's lips. In America, this is so - at least among those who are well dressed - thanks to the remarkable documentary "His unbuttoned," which showed Mizrahi and his world.
"His unbuttoned" has won numerous prizes and immediately spawned a huge affection for this eccentric gifted person. This is a phenomenal influence on the popularity of Mizrahi, perhaps because he was shown a positive guy - extravagant, perhaps, but with a wonderful sense of humor. And best of all, that, unlike most other on-screen portraits prone embellish the actual appearance of the hero, in this case corresponds to the original reflection in the mirror.
Mizrahi and the real, everyday life speaks in capital letters, with many adjectives, using intricate grammar that according to a handwriting reflects the infectious enthusiasm with which he does. And that's inherent ability to see throughout the comic behind which became his hallmark magnificent colors (prompted, as he confesses, candy wrappers from the candy) and crazy designs his collections.
Having obtained a diploma in 1979, drama school, he enrolled at a school Parson. Why? What it is not fascinated by the actor's career? To blame his mother and the child's dream. Even with 12 years of Mizrahi knew he wanted to become a fashion designer. He knew that from that moment on television saw a repetition of the film 60-ies of disorderly affair one couturier. High Heels, taffeta, silk cuttings: he was astounded by what I saw on the screen, but it yesherskie teachers could not grasp why the eccentric boy insists that he wants to sew dresses for Barbie.
His mother (ie "Mom" instead of "mother", because like any other Jewish boy Mizrahi adores her), who liked to dress by Norell and bought them at some of the cheapest stores, have a remarkable sense of style. As Mizrahi says, "She dared to put on my father's beach pajamas, . when others have not thought about such: Seer. "Both, . and Mizrahi, . his mother, . understandably, . Tears, . learning - even after, . Isaac entered the apartment, . - That in an apartment house, . where he settled, . previously lived Norell,
It is strange that the general scheme of interior decoration, developed Mizrahi and his architect, Ross Anderson, largely borrowed from Norell - bleached wood and leather. His lucky find a tiny apartment in Greenwich Village continues to charm Mizrahi and now, . when, . seemingly, . he has the opportunity to buy as many square meters of prestigious housing, . as he dream: "To live in this place was a dream of my life,
. This apartment meets all my needs. This is the perfect size: I'm too busy, I was not up to the big flat ". However, Mizrahi often takes friends: "I prefer small companies, and it is good, taking into account the size of my home".
Although Anderson was also engaged in design studio Mizrahi, work progressed slowly over the flat, despite the fact that there really should have just put in order the interior. "I wanted something soothing. Cozy. Simple. I have a hard life, and I need a break. I do not want anything that would require a very careful care ". "True luxury is not contrary to fact, from what I worked in the studio: a combination of raw and processed items and texture finishes. While I have not bought a piano - the main subject of my apartment, I could not be squarely addressed the interior design. I knew that he would dominate, and realized that it is pointless to work with something else in the room. While it is not brought back, I lived like a monk. I waited and even almost unpacked, I was waiting for him - a grand piano "Steinway" around 1936. This is my most excellent acquisition: pure ivory, perfect tonic, a divine voice ".
Once the piano was installed, Mizrahi began to pick the furniture in accordance with the theme of design: "Fred Astaire Meets 2001 - A Space Odyssey". When you look at the apartment clean lines and classic design of products, it seems that Astaire came down from heaven and hung Mizrahi behind in those moments when he chose the furniture and arrange it in places. "All stop. I choose - is my "I". I think it is because I designer, I'm not so afraid to experiment at home. When you - the arbiter of fashion, you know how to answer many questions on design. But, knowing how many there are options that can be confusing and. And yet what I'm doing, interconnected. I do not know how it specifically, except to say that in everything I do, the same sensitivity manifests itself - whether it's room, costume, souffle or piano concerto ". Apartment sensual, sensual fashion. As a reflection of its essence. As a continuation of his nature:.
A pity that Mizrahi is not yet popular with us. Buying his clothes, you will get an excellent opportunity to bring him a piece of my life. Bit of a fun, stylish, intelligent and sensual. What is it you bad?
