Design duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka have made their name over the past two decades with elegant, stylish, and wearable evening gowns and accessories. They met while studying at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, after which both designed for leading fashion houses. Building on an aesthetic of streamlined sophistication, luxurious detailing, and Old Hollywood glamour (a la Veronica Lake), they launched Badgley Mischka in 1998. Since then their gowns have been worn by the likes of Kate Winslet, Jennifer Garner, and Catherine Zeta Jones. Look for interesting shapes and unique details from our collaboration with the team.
