Madame Alexander and Isaac Mizrahi

A line of dolls produced by a collaboration between famous designer Isaac Mizrahi and the Madame Alexander Doll Company debuted at the New York Toy Fair recently.

Isaac Mizrahi said it was a dream for him. From what I see of these two fashion dolls, it looks like the dream was a nightmare.

Neither the fashions nor the dolls approach any standard most of us collectors would use in our own collections. Where is the fashion DESIGN? What's up with the awkward looking fur hat? Either the photographer should be killed or the outfit is just downright awful.
Isaac Mizrahi Classic Iconic – Limited Edition $199.95
Isaac Mizrahi Modern Iconic – Limited Edition $999.95
Look at the terrible stitching on Modern Iconic's skirt, above. This rivals cheap Barbie quality. I really can't believe the trash Mizrahi is putting out there. Embarrassing.
Priced at $999.95, seriously? Does she come with extra wigs and fashions? 


The play dolls are listed at $69.95.

  1. LOL Terri! You are so right, the hem on the $999.00 doll is making my eye twitch! For that price it should have been sewn by hand, or underlined. The doll looks so basic.

    1. That hem is an embarrassment to anyone who knows how to sew...or anyone who has eyes.

  2. Yuck! All that comes to mind is the tv commercial where the woman says, "she sounds hideous" well, these outfits are hideous! I've never been fond of Madame Alexander because I don't like the child face with an adult body... just creeps me out. The prices are out of this world... for $999... that hem should have been 24 carat gold!

  3. Hahaha," he has excellent taste in dogs" I'm afraid one of his furry little friends landed in a split on the first dolls' head... This is so incredible. They must think one would buy blindly anything as long as a designer puts his or hers name on it. Terri, your post made an ordinary evening a fun one! Thanks-))

  4. When I first saw Iconic Classic, I wondered where was Rocky the flying squirrel? Boris and Natasha? Makes absolutely no sense.
