    Models showed Mizrahi's new designs at Friday's event.

    No woman can call herself a true fashionista without knowing (since these days it's not just about owning) a set of must-have terms, from "sexy", and "chic", to "poddy" and "kawaii." While most of these terms vary from generation to generation and from one season to the next, a few have withstood the test of time.

    Take, for example, "snappy" -- that perfect adjective originally used by Liz Claiborne to describe her fashion line. Fast forward to 2009, and you now hear the same term used by fashion star Isaac Mizrahi to describe his new collection for the Liz Claiborne fashion house.

    Opting for the "American version of Chanel", Mizrahi goes for clean lines, classic basics, punches of color, and fun patterns. With over 200 pieces in the collection, including jewelry, bags and shoes, Mizrahi delivers an amazing yet approachable treat.

    Last Friday, Mizrahi came to The Ivy Room at Tree Studios to celebrate the launch of his new line for Liz Claiborne. Lucky visitors met the designer, enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and watched models casually showcasing some of the latest designs.

    All of a sudden, snappy is the new sexy.
