Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi spins through a dizzying array of inspirations — from ’50s pinups to a fleeting glimpse of a hole in a shirt that makes him shout “Stop the cab!” What else keeps him creative and passionate about everything? His TV chatfest, his work with Mark Morris, his cabaret act, and his … cooking show? Inside this rambling, chatty talk are real clues to living a happy, creative life, from a man who has perfected the art. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 14:16.)
