Isaac Mizrahi’s Memoir

16 Sep

While I was in Motown last week, I met fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi. It’s the second time I met him as I interviewed him almost 20 years ago when I was editor of Style magazine, a local Detroit publication no longer in existence.

He’s still engaging, funny and oh so talented. He was in Detroit speaking at a Hadassah event about his new memoir, I.M. Mizrahi spoke about growing up in an insulated, Syrian Jewish community in New York. He was conflicted as an overweight youth, but found his calling in the arts. He sketches, sings, performs, and dances. He was even in the movie Fame, as one of the dancers in high school.

Mizrahi is a well-known fashion icon, and now he can add writer to his list of accomplishments. It’s a candid, honest portrait with fashion, glamour and plenty of Jewish mother stories.
