Isaac Mizrahi Exhibit @ The Jewish Museum

A few weeks back on a rainy spring day, getting stir crazy from being indoors too long, the kids and I hopped in a cab and headed across town to to see the  Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History exhibit. I knew the visit might not be a hit with all the children but my strategy, with kids, is to always keep the museum visits focused and short and then everyone usually enjoys the experience.

The core of the exhibition features iconic designs from the Isaac Mizrahi New York clothing label (1987 – 1998), the “semi-couture” collections (2003 – 2011), and the line for Target (2002 – 2008) – the first designer partnership done with that store. The show is comprised of 42 “looks” that include clothing, hats, jewelry, shoes, accessories, and costumes for the theater, the opera, and the Mark Morris Dance Group. Read more
