Cake And Poodles And Yes, Fashion, Oh My!

by The StyleList SOURCE The Fashion Wire

Issac Mizrahi debuted his Fall 2011 collection titled "Cake." at New York Fashion Week. The show was inspired by poodles and Wayne Thiebaud's painting of cakes. A whole lotta show.

A lot was going on at this presentation. For starters, the show “Cake Boss” was filming, so the model looks were interspersed with men carrying complementary cakes. And then there were the dogs, specifically, poodles painted colors to match the dresses.

Oh, and the clothes. It seems theatrics often overshadow the product at Isaac Mizrahi, and this season was no exception. His Fall 2011 offerings are pretty simple — sheaths, lovely dresses and gowns — so perhaps the lack of sartorial gimmicks explains why the designer felt he needed the props.
