Isaac Mizrahi's Inspiration for his Premier Collection for Kleinfeld:
"This was a labor of love for me. Bridal is where it all begins -- so i tried to bring things I love the most. There are floral inspirations in the embroideries, in the lace, in a lot of the draping. Also gingham, which is something I associate with happiness and Americana. I like the irony of creating THE most delicate gingham out of organza. Something one might associate with a rodeo or a hayride now has a gorgeous place walking down the aisle." ~Isaac
