Isaac Mizrahi's Dreamy & Delicious Central Park Storybook Fantasy

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We daresay one of our favorite American designers Isaac Mizrahi is a bit obsessed with precipitation. At his spring-summer show last season, he made it rain, and models traversed the catwalk-slash-obstacle-course with help from a production crew member with an umbrella. This season? He made it snow.

The weather patterns at the Mizrahi show only added to the charm of his fall-winter "Central Park Storybook" collection—we adored his witty use of clear plastic (on raincoats and shoes), the easy-to-wear silhouettes which included everything from sleek, boxy, waistless straight dresses to glamorous waist-nipping floofy gowns, quilted olive-green leather coats in the Barbour or barn jacket tradition, and too-cute Muppetfur outerwear in Beaker-hair orange. The glittery slip dresses in a handful of bright tropical colors were classic Mizrahi, and our favorites.
