Isaac Mizrahi for Liz Claiborne

In potentially good news for affordable fashion, Isaac Mizrahi has been announced as the new designer for Liz Claiborne. Once upon a time, Liz was the label to go to for many women. It was work wear and casual wear, stylish , priced well, but not too trendy. Somewhere along the line that kind of vanished a bit.

I have always been a Mizrahi fan, and think his Target line is wonderful. Unlike the GO lines, Mizrahi for Target was good quality and seemed designer like. I think he will do great things for Claiborne, and modernize it more.

Heres the official word via WWD,

"Liz Claiborne Inc. has enlisted Isaac Mizrahi to rescue its struggling flagship brand. Mizrahi is leaving Target Corp. — the venue that introduced him to the mainstream customer — at the end of this year and will become creative director for all categories of the better-priced women's Liz Claiborne brand, beginning in spring 2009."
