Fashion and creativity
– Isaac Mizrahi

From TED.com

Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi spins through a dizzying array of inspirations — from ’50s pinups to a fleeting glimpse of a woman on the street who makes him shout “Stop the cab!” Inside this rambling talk are real clues to living a happy, creative life.

Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi mixes high fashion and the mass market, with a line of haute couture and a line for Target. Plus a talk show, a cabaret act, a movie, a new book …

Why you should listen

Design-wise, Isaac Mizrahi is best known for bridging the gap between high and low— creating gorgeous couture confections for the likes of Eartha Kitt and others, as well as a hugely popular, groundbreakingly affordable line for Target.

His design mission comes wrapped in endless charisma. He’s a talk-show host, he’s performed his own one-man show Off-Broadway, he was the subject of the hilarious documentary Unzipped, and he does regular cabaret nights at Joe’s Pub in New York City. His new book is called How to Have Style .

What others say

“Q: Do you find that what you do on the side – namely, music – actually makes your [design] more vibrant? A: I think so. Some don’t agree with that thought, but I don’t care about those people. I only care about myself and what I really like doing and what amuses me.” — Stylelist.com
