The MarketWatch Q&A: Badgley Mischka’s James Mischka on the state of the luxury market — and what he won’t spend money on

Mark Badgley and James Mischka launched their luxury fashion label in 1988. Since then, their garments have been sold in high-end retailers like Nordstrom Inc. JWN, -0.02% Saks Fifth Avenue HBC, +2.04% Neiman Marcus and at their own boutiques.

Their clothing, which ranges from gowns that make a “grand gesture” with bows and beads to more understated or casual looks, have also appeared on the red carpet, worn by celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez.

In 1993, another high-end brand, Escada, became Badgley Mischka’s parent company. The label was then sold to Iconix Brand Group Inc.
