Perry Ellis Award, 1988
Womenswear Designer of the Year, 1989, 1991
Special Award for Unzipped, 1995
Mizrahi made his name for classic American clothes in the 1990s, but he became full-on famous because of Unzipped, one of the first fashion documentaries to truly capture the industry during that wild era. He was forced shutter his label at the end of that decade, but Mizrahi went on to establish one of the first designer lines for Target in 2003. From there, he relaunched his ready-to-wear label and is now Creative Director at Liz Claiborne.
