Mark Badgley and James Mischka have been hailed by Vogue as one of the "Top 10 American Designers" and as the darlings of the Hollywood set. The design duo has made their mark over the past two decades with glamorous, stylish and wearable evening wear and accessories.
Recently, Mark and James have discovered increasing demand for their signature accessory collections from a noticeably younger fan base of consumers. In response to this younger audience, Mark and James are pleased to present Jewel Badgley Mischka, a collection of accessories that includes footwear and handbags. Debuting for Spring 2017, Jewel Badgley Mischka will offer products with all of the elegance and glamour that Badgley Mischka is famous for but with a more accessible price point designed with the younger Badgley Mischka fan in mind. Mark and James joined forces to launch Badgley Mischka 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. Their timeless designs appeal to a range of fashionable women, including Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Sarah Jessica Parker, Helen Mirren and Ashley Judd. “We always try to remain consistent with their philosophy ‘One zip and you're glamorous!’,” says Mark Badgley. “We like to keep things effortless. It's fabulous if you can spend hours getting ready, but a woman should also be able to bring a dress to work and change there for an evening out,” James Mischka continues.
Badgley Mischka is sold in the most prestigious stores in the world including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue in addition to the Badgley Mischka flagship boutique in Beverly Hills.
