The Glamour of the 1940s ~ Badgley and Mischka

Badgley Mischka presents a collection at New York Fashion Week. It has been a little while since they had a collection walk the runway. Last year instead of a runway collection they were on a book tour. “Badgley Mischka: American Glamour,” we had the honor of meeting with them during this time. 

They discussed the runway and creating collection. Runway designing compares to a wedding 6 months of really hard work and in five minutes it is over. It is exhilarating to see the full design and styling. Mark Badgley said, “it is like seeing your daughter on her wedding day.” They love the runway part of the fashion world.

This collections takes women back to a time when things were tough and how they power through these times. The collection takes silhouettes from the 1940s. A time in history that required women to power through tremulous times.


The collections takes nipped waists, a sense of armor with the use of beads, and jewels, longer hems, and voluminous skirts. They do have the seasonal trends with embroidered flowers, red roses, play with the sleeves, and the color red. There is a real modern pull from the 1940s silhouettes.

Badgley and Mischka continue with the tradition of exceptional details. They are known for their beading and embellishments; it is all in the details. The inspiration for their beading comes from jewelry. Many dresses may have up to 30,000 beads, beaded by old men in India. They consider themselves magpies when it comes to their beading collections.
