Established in 1988, Mark Eisen's eponymous designer ready-to-wear collection embodied the best of luxury modern American Sportswear. The design was clean, sleek, luxurious, sensual, and sophisticated. A minimalist at heart, he believed in the realism and functionality of clothing. A refined tailor and master knit specialist, Eisen had a history of combining technical advancements with luxury, detail and practicality. Launched by Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman, Eisen built several global fashion brands; his labels were showcased in over 800 of the finest retail stores in 18 countries and Mark Eisen Collection showed on the runways at New York Fashion Week. Eisen is a voting member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
