ISAAC MIZRAHI IN PERSON
(1995, Douglas Keeve) “Isaac Mizrahi as he conceived and contorted the way through to his fall 1994 show, [dashing] around a deserted SoHo with pal Sandra Bernhard; [meeting] with Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and baby Kate Moss for fittings; and [racing] uptown to an audience with Eartha Kitt… Hair-raising deadlines, delirious Bette Davis impressions, and the hostile but exhilarating act of executing a designer’s vision come together in a work that set the bar for all fashion films after.” – Vogue. New DCP restoration. Approx. 73 min.
Following the film, Film Forum Repertory Director Bruce Goldstein will chat with Mizrahi himself, with audience Q&A. Following the event, Isaac will sign copies of his new I.M.: A Memoir (Flatiron Books), available for sale at our concession.
“Set the bar for all fashion films after.”
– Christopher Barnard, Vogue
“Not only does the film establish the credentials of the art of fashion, it’s also a whole lot funnier than Altman’s Prêt-à-Porter.”
– Tom Charity, Time Out
