Mark Badgley and James Mischka met while studying at Parsons School of Design in NY. Both
spent time designing for leading names: Mark for Donna Karan, James for WilliWear/WilliSmith.
Since joining forces in 1988 as Badgley Mischka, the pair has captivated the fashion press with
a style that caters to a younger, more modern couture customer. Winona Ryder, Ashley Judd,
Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Hurley, Mira Sorvino and Catherine Zeta-Jones have worn
Badgley Mischka designs.
