ABOUT MICHAEL KORS
Born in New York in 1959, Michael Kors is one of the founding fathers of modern American sportswear. His designs are simple, chic and timeless due to his precise tailoring and luxurious fabrics. In 2010, he became the youngest designer to receive the CFDA's coveted Lifetime Achievement Award.
"You don't have to give up anything," says Kors. "You can be chic but have a sense of humor. You can be timeless but fresh." With more than 30 years of design experience, Kors refuses to limit his aesthetic. This results in collections ranging from preppy and traditional to edgy and glamorous—meanwhile, his signature polish and refinement tie them all together.
