James Mischka and Mark Badgley
Iconix Brand Group
The Badgley Mischka Bride label was launched in 1993.
Badgley Mischka is also responsible for designing the second wedding dress worn by Kristin Davis as Charlotte York on Sex and the City.
The combination of fine crisp and softly draping fabrics (bouclï¿½ and silk, velvet trimmed wool, organza and silk chiffon) adds dimension and drama. Fitted, empire, or lowered, waistlines are superbly shaped. Expertly mixed cocktail dressesï¿½with evocative cocktail names such as the Tom Collins, the Delmonico, the Bacardiï¿½ are off-the-shoulder, dï¿½colletï¿½, bowed, lacy, or beaded and above the knee. All are subtly provocative, feminine, and flirtatious. Their bridal gowns cause women to swoon, such as the V-backed ivory lace and silk-crï¿½pe dress, or the off-white silk brocade coatdress, with front wrap and jeweled buttons. Badgley Mischka bridal dresses are for the grown-up sweet tooth, confections allowing the beauty of the wearer to shine through the frills.
