Isaac Mizrahi and Iris Apfel in Conversation

Please make your reservations by October 27, Members $30, nonmembers $40.
Mizrahi, now the creative director for Liz Claiborne, launched and starred in The Fashion Show on Bravo this year, a reality series for aspiring designers. His women's collection is available internationally and can also be seen in fashion magazines around the world. Apfel is a New York interior designer and co-founder with her husband, Carl, of the textile house Old World Weavers. Her ensembles, pieced together after travels to flea markets, souks and a most impressive array of fashion houses, blend color, texture, pattern and style without regard to conventional standards. Her style is her own.

Lynda Roscoe Hartigan, The James B. and Mary Lou Hawkes Chief Curator, moderates the discussion. A Q&A follows the event.
