Badgley Mischka presents a collection at New York Fashion Week. It has been a little while since they produced a collection walk the runway. Last year instead of a runway collection they were on a book tour. “Badgley Mischka: American Glamour,” we had the honor of meeting with them during this time.
They discussed the runway and creating a collection. Runway designing compares to a wedding 6 months of really hard work and in five minutes it is over. It is exhilarating to see the full design and styling. Mark Badgley said, “it is like seeing your daughter on her wedding day.” They love the runway part of the fashion world.
This collection takes women back to a time when things were tough and how they power through these times. The collection takes silhouettes from the 1940s. A time in history that required women to power through tremulous times.
The collections take nipped waists, a sense of armor with the use of beads, and jewels, longer hems, and voluminous skirts. They do have the seasonal trends with embroidered flowers, red roses, play with the sleeves, and the color red. There is a real modern pull from the 1940s silhouettes.
Badgley and Mischka continues the tradition of exceptional details. They are known for their beading and embellishments; it is all in the details. The inspiration for their beading comes from jewelry. Many dresses may have up to 30,000 beads, beaded by old men in India. They consider themselves magpies when it comes to their beading collections.
This collection included everyday wear from tracksuits to cashmere coats with sleek pants. The designer did not take from their glamorous woman even with flats.
Every woman who wears Badgley Mischka will be super glamorous with comfort and modern sensibility (sizes to 16 on the website). This collection adds a sense of empowerment. These designs will grace red carpets, social gatherings, and on the streets.The designers demonstrated that it is all in the details at Badgley Mischka.
