Mark Badgley and James Mischka joined forces in 1988 and since the beginning Badgley Mischka has captivated the fashion press and prominent retailers around the world with their sophisticated style that caters to a younger, more modern couture customer, without forsaking women of any age. They have remained true to this design philosophy and the consistent integrity of their collections has pushed them to the forefront of fashion. "Our style harks back to the glamorous Hollywood of the Forties" says Mischka. "One zip and you're glamorous!" says Badgley. "We like to keep things effortless."
