Reception of Isaac Mizrahi at International House
Last Tuesday, International House (IHouse) welcomed a very special guest, Isaac Mizrahi. As a leader in design business for more than twenty years, Mr Mizrahi has been awarded four Council of Fashion Designers of America awards, including a special award in 1995 for the groundbreaking documentary "UNZIPPED".
This time he came to IHouse to share his life stories with the hopes of inspiring younger people to pursuit their dreams. During his talk, he exhibited a sense of humor and kind of insatiable spirit as a fashion designer. He said it is very easy to become bored on what he designed, but these are the key factors that keep him moving forward. I somehow define him as a doer, because he just follows his heart and make things happen. He said "How do I do it? I don't know how I wouldn't do it - that's the thing." He also addressed that, "If I just do it, it will take less time than telling someone what I'm thinking, and have them free associate, and then come back to me and I'll hate it and I'll have to redo it."
