In 1988, Mark Badgley and James Mischka captivated the fashion press with Badgley Mischka, their refreshing line of high-glamour gowns. The designing duo — partners in life as well as in business — continues to enthrall reporters, bloggers, and runway audiences with dramatic and luxurious eveningwear, everyday separates, bridal dresses, outerwear, handbags and accessories, eyewear, and shoes. Rhinestones, flowing trains, and delicate silhouettes give Badgley Mischka dresses and gowns a red-carpet elegance that channels the traditions of Old Hollywood without sacrificing youthful exuberance and modernity. But don't take that last bit from us: Ask Madonna, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lopez, or any of the other A-list celebs who have donned Badgley Mischka at the Oscars, the Golden Globes, and other star-studded events.
