THE ALL AMERICAN ELEGANCE
Michael Kors celebrates three decades of fashion
Renowned international designer and a favorite judge in Project Runway, Michael Kors definitely made a special mark in the fashion world throughout his 30 years. Started in 1981, his unique pieces have been described as timeless luxury, pragmatic glamour, and a modern point of view in both ready-to-wear and accessories.
As an honor to his contribution in the fashion industry, Michael Kors recently exhibited his Fall 2011 Collection at the Theater at Lincoln Center. This milestone was witnessed by the who’s who of fashion and society, and was graced by celebrities who have inspired Mr. Kors throughout the three decades.
Another milestone in celebration of his anniversary, last March Michael Kors launched his new luxurious Michael Kors Madison Avenue Collection Flagship store, which is now 5,500 square feet with three levels, so that clients can enjoy a larger display of his collection.
Aside from these two feats, the celebrations were completed at a place very close to the celebrated designer—Paris. After working for seven years as Creative Director of Celine in Paris, he chose Paris for the new 7,000-square-foot Michael Kors Flagship retail location at 279 Rue Saint Honoré. This will not only be the largest Michael Kors store in the world, but it is also the fashion house’s first freestanding retail location in France. Clients will discover that the flagship offers a diverse range of products from the Michael Kors Collection, KORS Michael Kors, and MICHAEL Michael Kors labels. Completing the affair was an intimate dinner hosted by Charles H. Rivkin, US Ambassador to France, and his wife, Ms. Susan M. Tolvon. This was graced by some of the notable personalities including Vogue’s Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, Emanuelle Alt, Franca Sozzani, and Anna Dello Russo, Harper’s Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey, and W Magazine’s Stefano Tonchi, along with celebrities donning Michael Kors designs, Mary J. Blige, Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Hudson, Claudia Schiffer, and Karolina Kurkova.
The anniversary celebrations symbolize Kors’ many achievements in the fashion industry as well as the indelible mark he contributed in the world of fashion.
