Badgley Mischka Eyewear / Eyeglasses at Atlanta Vision Optical Boutique
In the frenetic and often tumultuous fashion industry, Mark Badgley and James Mischka are a rare breed. Hailed by Vogue as being amongst the “Top 10 American Designers” and the darlings of the young Hollywood set, this design team has made its mark with the most glamorous, stylish and wearable evening wear to come down the runway in years.
Since joining forces in 1988, Mark Badgley and James Mischka have captivated the fashion press and prominent retailers with a sophisticated style that caters to a younger, more modern couture customer, while still appealing to women of all ages. “Our style harks back to the glamorous Hollywood of the Forties” say Mark and James, whose designs are simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant. Badgley Mischka’s timeless designs are favorites of such celebrities as Madonna, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ashley Judd.
Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear
In 2006, Mark and James joined forces with longtime friend Sheila Vance of Sama Eyewear to create an eyewear collection worthy of the Badgley Mischka name. The result was Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear, a glamorous collection of ophthalmics and sunglasses for women and men that recalls the “Golden Age of Hollywood” and remains true to Badgley Mischka’s design philosophy. The chic women’s styles are highlighted by the elegant and innovative use of laser cut and cast titanium, exotic feathers, Swarovski crystals and pearls. The stunning men’s styles feature modern interpretations of classic designs and incorporate premium metals and plastics to make a bold fashion statement. Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear puts the couture back into eyewear.
