Say What? Isaac Mizrahi Is Debuting Both Friday And Saturday Nights On QVC: Our Invites To Both Must Have Been Lost In The Mail

December 3, 2009

Just how many times is designer Isaac Mizrahi being “introduced” or “debuting” on QVC?

The network put out a press release that says The ISAACMIZRAHILIVE! show debut will be broadcast live on QVC Saturday at 8 p.m. from his design space in New York. But he is also appearing on the home shopping channel Friday night during its “Posh in the Park” show live from Bryant Park in Manhattan. Huh? How many debuts can you have?

Here’s what QVC is saying about the Posh shindig, which starts at 8 p.m. Friday with host Lisa Robertson.

“Lisa’s Holiday List from Bryant Park, NYC – introducing ISAACMIZRAHILIVE!… indulgent (and self-indulgent!) gifts and little luxuries from some of our most popular brands and guests. Who better than Program Host Lisa Robertson to share her Holiday List featuring the best in luxury gifts and affordable indulgences, from brands and designers including Isaac Mizrahi, Dennis Basso, Rachel Zoe, Joan Rivers and more.”

As for Mizrahi’s second “debut,” it will be broadcast from his New York City space Saturday, and in order “to fully bring its customers into the designer’s world, a special QVC studio was created for the venture – a step never taken before by the network.”

One small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind, we guess.

The QVC studio is housed within Mizrahi’s design space in Manhattan and incorporates his signature design aesthetic.

“Isaac Mizrahi is one of the most talented minds in the fashion industry. His passion for design has shown that great fashion and style don’t have to come with a hefty price tag,” Claire Watts, QVC’s president of U.S. Commerce, said in a prepared statement. “We know that his enthusiasm and brilliant ideas will resonate with our customers. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the QVC family.”

The ISAACMIZRAHILIVE! collection will span many product categories, including apparel, jewelry, accessories, handbags, shoes, home décor and food. The collection ranges in price from $20 to $300.

“I am so excited to unveil my lifestyle collection for QVC. It’s been a wonderful challenge and I’m already having so much fun with it,” Mizrahi said in a prepared statement. “I can’t wait to connect with QVC’s customers, sharing with them my designs and inspirations.”

Here’s more of the QVC hype from the Mizrahi press release.

“Isaac Mizrahi has just about mastered everything – from designing fashion collections and starring in numerous television programs to authoring books and mentoring millions, his successes are infinite. He will soon be adding another achievement to his robust list of accomplishments when he unveils a groundbreaking lifestyle collection, ISAACMIZRAHILIVE!, with QVC, one of the world’s leading multimedia retailers.”

Plaid cheesecake is one of his much anticipated QVC products.
