Legendary designer Isaac Mizrahi says he’s never liked high fashion brand logos. Instead, the “Project Runway: All Stars” judge says he prefers fast fashion.

“When I was designing couture clothes, I kept getting offers to do these collections in Paris to revive collections in Paris, and I kept saying no,” he told Cheddar. “It’s kind of funny to see people with big Chanel C’s all over them, or big Gucci G’s or whatever.”

Mizrahi has been in the fashion industry for more than 3 decades, dressing stars such as Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Natalie Portman. He created a successful secondary line for Target between 2002 and 2008, before joining Liz Claiborne for a year. His designs are now sold in stores such as Bloomingdales.

He told Cheddar that he prefers low-key apparel. “I like to notice people instead of what they’re wearing,” Mizrahi said. “I really do.”
