Mark Badgley and James Mischka met while students at Parsons School of Design in New York City in the 1980s. They both had a similar design concept of one zipper dressing, believing that looking elegant didn’t have to be a complicated process, which made them naturals to collaborate. They officially created Badgley Mischka in 1988.
Their designs appealed to a modern, young thinking, and fashion-forward clientele. They are most famous for their evening and bridal wear lines, priding themselves on reviving old-fashioned Hollywood glamour, and later expanding to accessories.
Badgley Mischka designs have been frequently spotted on the red carpet, worn by such celebrities as Catherine Zeta-Jones, Winona Ryder, Ashley Judd, and Cameron Diaz.
