Fashion: Season after season, Michael Kors is renowned for his classic, chic, and luxurious but sensible aesthetic on American sportswear and clothing as well as shoes and accessories.
Kors began designing clothes at the age of 19 and studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. After designing and merchandising clothes for New York boutique Lothar's, he then went on to launch his own line of clothes in 1981 and has also been the head of French design house Celine. His current lines include the Michael Kors runway collection, the MICHAEL Michael Kors and KORS Michael Kors.
The company mission statement is inclusive of all Michael Kors products, "Michael Kors is the leading American fashion designer for luxury accessories and sportswear. The company's heritage is rooted in producing polished, sleek, sophisticated American sportswear with a jet-set attitude. Whether Aspen, Palm Beach or Capri, our mission is to bring our vision of a jet-set, luxury lifestyle to women and men around the globe. Our products, emblematic of the highest standard of quality, include apparel, accessories and beauty. Our lifestyle-driven company embraces the highest standards of creativity, quality, technology and human resources."
Michael Kors uses the modern trends of today's fashion, like metallics and florals and incorporates them into his own iconic style to make beautiful creations like the Michael Kors Beverly Python Drawstring Satchel or the flowing ankle-length Michael Kors Van Gogh Floral-Print Kimono Gown.
Throughout his impressive career, and in all his collections, Kors has retained his all-American luxuriously chic style.
