The design duo behind Badgley Mischka bring their opulent, cinema-inspired fall 2016 collection to Neiman Marcus's couture for a cure.
Beaded and embroidered top ($990) and skirt (price on request), and beaded and embroidered gown ($4,455), Badgley Mischka Couture.
“Our Fall 2016 collection was inspired partly by the film Dr. Zhivago,” says Mark Badgley, who, along with James Mischka, form eveningwear label and red-carpet staple Badgley Mischka. “The clothes have a rich, luxurious glamour to them,” he continues, describing pieces like a white and gold metallic gown with floral appliques and sapphire stunners adorned with jewel-toned beadwork. Philadelphia tastemakers can peruse the collection and meet the designers during a Champagne reception at Neiman Marcus’s Couture for a Cure event on September 21, at 11 AM. Proceeds from the event, which is being held in memory of Bucks County native Sheila Engelbach, will benefit Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center Lymphoma Program.
Engelbach’s charitable spirit is what inspired Missy Dietz, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus at King of Prussia, to choose Badgley Mischka for the occasion. “They believe in giving back and have always been great partners in our philanthropic efforts in the community,” Dietz says. Badgley, who lost his father to cancer at a very young age, shares the same sentiment. “We are 100 percent on board to do anything that we can to help in the fight against cancer.”
