Mizrahi grew raised in a Syrian Jewish neighborhood in Ocean Parkway, New Jersey, before moving to Brooklyn with his family as a child. As a result of his mother’s passion for fashion, Mizrahi was exposed to it at a young age. He was a tremendous movie buff who found enormous inspiration in the 1961 remake of “Back Street,” enjoying the film’s fashion splendour.
When Mizrahi was ten years old, his father purchased him a sewing machine, and he began designing garments. Mizrahi went to Mitwood’s Yeshivas of Flatbush school and then to Manhattan’s High School of the Performing Arts, all the while designing outfits for his own label, IS New York, with the support of his mother’s friend Sarah Haddad, who helped fund the label. When her husband became ill, she was unable to continue to fund Mizrahi’s work, and IS New York was forced to close. In 1979, Mizrahi enrolled at Parson’s School of Design.
Mizrahi worked for Perry Ellis, Jeffrey Banks, and Calvin Klein before launching his own label in 1987 with Haddad’s assistance. Mizrahi’s net worth began to soar after his initial collections received strong praise from fashion critics. He immediately rose to prominence, receiving three CDFA awards and was awarded best designer of 1990 by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York, as well as being named to Crain’s New York Business’ annual “40 Under 40” list. As Mizrahi’s collections became popular among celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts, and Natalie Portman, Chanel purchased a part in his company and financed its operations.
The company, on the other hand, had its ups and downs, with the inability to develop the “Mizrahi Look” working against the young designer. Despite grossing between $10 and $20 million each year, his company failed to make a profit, leading to Chanel’s withdrawal of funding in 1998, and the company’s closure.
However, director Douglas Keeve captured Mizrahi’s creativity and used it to create the documentary “Unzipped” in 1995, which depicted the designer’s hard work and accomplishment. In 1995, the documentary received the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. Mizrahi’s reputation and notoriety grew even more, and the documentary increased his net worth significantly.
In 1997, Mizrahi released “Isaac Mizrahi Presents the Adventures of Sandee the Supermodel,” a collection of three comic novels depicting a gorgeous girl’s trials in the world of fashion.
Mizrahi designed low-cost collections in collaboration with Target in the 2000s, as well as more pricey Isaac Mizrahi to Order collections. He designed for Liz Claiborne in 2009, and the following year he launched IsaacMizrahiLIVE!, which he later sold to Xcel Brands, increasing his fortune once more. Mizrahi also created costumes for films, theater, dance, and opera performances.
Meanwhile, he found a new method to express himself by establishing a male cabaret act based on the fashion industry, using famous Broadway musical tunes and modifying the lyrics to reflect his life. He also became the host of his own television chat program on cable’s Oxygen Network.
In 2005, he hosted the Style Network show “Isaac.” Mirzahi has been in a variety of TV shows, including “Sex and the City,” “Spin City,” “Ugly Betty,” “The Apprentice,” “Gossip Girl,” and “The Big C,” as well as on the public radio show “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.” He also starred in “Men in Black,” “Small Time Crocks,” “Hollywood Ending,” and “Celebrity.” In 2009 and 2010, he co-hosted Bravo’s “The Fashion Show,” and two years later, he was a head judge on “Project Runway: All Stars.” He frequently appears on Eprograms !’s and shows. His net worth is largely influenced by his television job. Since 2011, Mizrani has been married to Arnold Germer in his personal life.
