James Mischka began at Rice University as a biomedical engineering major and ultimately graduated with degrees in art history and managerial studies in 1985. Badgley and Mischka met at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan. The two launched the label Badgley Mischka in 1988, though their bridal business launched in 1993.[citation needed] In 1992, Badgley Mischka was acquired by Escada.[2] In 2004, Escada sold Badgley Mischka to Candie's (later renamed Iconix Brand Group).[3]

In September 2006, Badgley Mischka announced that Sharon Stone would replace Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as the brand's spokesperson.[4]

In 2017, Iconix sold Badgley Mischka to Mark Badgley, James Mischka, and Titan Industries.[5]
