Noted fashion designer and QVC vendor Isaac Mizrahi, who is also launching a cabaret act, made some interesting comments about the No. 1 home shopping network in a story in the New York Post Friday.
Mizrahi was interviewed about his stint, starting next week, singing at the Cafe Carlyle in Manhattan.
The curly-headed designer recalls imitating Barbra Streisand as a little kid, and talks about the advice that Liza Minnelli gave him to allay his stage fright when he sings.
But what caught our eye in the Post’s Q&A was this exchange:
Post: I understand your act also involves re-gifting. What are you giving away?
Mizrahi: I go to a lot of gala parties, and you get bags of stuff you don’t need, and it just collects. There’s [also] stuff that didn’t sell too well on QVC, like Christmas ornaments. How do you get your audience to like you? Give them s - - t!
So will Mizrahi be “gifting” his audiences at the Carlyle with leftover QVC items, lie ornaments? And are they the “sh-t” he refers to?
