In this audio recording, fashion designer and Parsons School of Design alumnus Isaac Mizrahi introduces his student project, a glossy, "glitzy," colorful women's workwear ensemble exhibiting sportswear elements and an autumn feel. He emphasizes employing fabrics that students may not purchase through traditional sources, such as a tablecloth. Mizrahi and the instructors, probably Marie Essex and Frank Rizzo, converse about how the students should present their ideas to Mizrahi. Students then ask questions about the project. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "One Great Piece You Must Have."
