We are James Mischka and Mark Badgley of Badgley Mischka, and ask us whatever you want.
We are two guys from the United States that started a fashion house 25 years ago to help women look & feel their most beautiful.
A little bit about me (Mark): I was born & raised in Oregon. My father was in retail and was the president of various department stores, and I always had an affinity for fashion & retail. Moved to NYC to go to design school, and started Badgley Mischka with my partner James. After school, I worked for Donna Karan as my first job out of college, right when she was just starting we shared the same desk, it was an amazing opportunity and experience. And we teamed our efforts after 2 years (James and I) and started Badgley Mischka.
A little bit about me (James): I was born in Wisconsin, raised in California & New Jersey, I went to college for biomedical engineering to design artificial limbs, and transferred to Parsons and ended up loving fashion and making a career of it!
