Isaac Mizrahi is a pop culture icon unlike any fashion designer of recent
memory. Yet ever since he shot to fame in the 1980s, the private Isaac Mizrahi
has remained under wraps. Until now. In his new memoir I.M., Isaac offers a
candid and touching look back on his life so far. He tells the story of growing
up gay in a sheltered Syrian Jewish Orthodox family. At the famed LaGuardia
High School for Performing Arts, he found his people (and appeared in his
first movie, Fame). As a budding fashion designer, he worked with luminaries
such as Perry Ellis and Calvin Klein. After branching out on his own, his label’s
instant success anointed him the wunderkind of the international fashion
world. In his elegant memoir, brimming with intimate details and inimitable
wit, Isaac reveals not just the glamour of his years, but the grit beneath the
glitz. This is pure Isaac, as only he can tell it.
