WATCH: Isaac Mizrahi Talks Fashion And Inspiration For TED

Have you ever heard of TED? Officially, TED is a “small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.” Unofficially, TED is simply the coolest. Its website features videos of over 700 TEDTalks (presentations by amazing people that max out at 18 minutes), making it a virtual treasure trove of awesome. While the D in TED stands for design, there is a definite lack of fashion people who have given talks. One designer who decided to take part? Isaac Mizrahi.

The irreverent designer (and insomniac) speaks about what inspires him: movies, astrologers, puppets and other people. Says Isaac: “Once it was on Page 6 in the Post that I was cruising this guy… but I was actually just following because he had these really great shoes on. So I was following this guy, and I took a picture of his shoes. And we thanked each other and just went on our way.”

Tim Gunn may not be his biggest fan, but we enjoy Isaac quite a bit. Check out his TEDTalk below (and tell us who else you’d like to see give one).
