Fashion Design Team Badgley Mischka Swaps The Red Carpet For Home Shopping Trunk Show On HSN

Who’d a thunk that the red-carpet fashion house Badgley Mischka would one day be selling a line on HSN.

But the two designers and celebrity favorites, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, premiered their American Glamour line of apparel, accessories and jewelry during a two-hour show Tuesday night. The first hour was clothes and handbags, the second devoted to jewelry.

“We’re here to bring glamour to American life,” said Badgley, who is the one with the glasses.

The team made its name designing beautful beaded and embellished evening gowns.

The price points on their HSN goods ranged from $99 for a silk tunic to $499 for a snakeskin satchel.

“This is truly one of our luxe bags,”  Badgley said.

Host Colleen Lopez said the handbag was the best-selling item on the HSN Web site out of the collection, and it was our favorite item. It sold out.

The Badgley Mischka foray on HSN is part of a trend of high-end designers, with the luxury market suffering, looking for distribution of lower-priced lines to the masses.

The designing duo started its couture company 20 years ago, with a collection of black dresses.

Badgley seemed like he had a smirk on his face throughout the show, but maybe he was just nervous. But all in all, he and his partner Mischka were pretty down to earth and came across quite well.

Lopez who couldn’t stop gushing about the merchandise.

“I might hyperventilate before this whole show is over,” she told the two designers.

Lopez was wearing a silk top that could be worn off the shoulders, the only place that Lopez said she didn’t have cellulite. It was $89.90, and she wore it in mocha.

Badgley got a surprise when his aunt in Nevada called in to wish him luck on the new line. She said she had purchased a tunic and was looking at some other items to buy. Mark, what kind of a nephew are you? Couldn’t you get her your stuff wholesale?

Of the jewelry, one of our favorites was Badgley Mischka’s Maltese crosses, but there was also an unusual watch. It looked like a vintage crystal bracelet at first glance, but was in fact a working watch. Mischka said it was inspired by a piece they found in a shop in Rhode Island.

Badgley and Mischka won’t be back on HSN until March, according to Lopez.
