About Michael KorsMichael Kors showed a very early interest in the world of fashion but few could have predicted how successful the designer would become. Kors’ products are now sold around the world and his brand is one of the most famous in the industry.
History of the BrandMichael Kors was born on Long Island, New York in 1959. He was given the name Karl Anderson Jr after his father. When his mother remarried and he was given the option to change his name, he decided to change his first name to Michael and took his stepfather’s surname, thus becoming Michael Kors. Kors grew up in New York and apparently revealed an interest in fashion at an early stage. When he was five, he suggested changes to his mother’s wedding dress, saying it was too fussy with too many bows. His mother subsequently had the dress altered in line with his taste! A possible explanation for Michael Kors’ early interest in the fashion industry is that his mother was a model. This meant that the young designer-to-be was immersed in the fashion world from a very young age. Kors’ nurtured his talent for design throughout his teenage years. He spent his time constructively, designing and selling clothes from the basement of his parents’ house. Deciding to pursue this career path, Kors attended The Fashion Institute of Technology, New York. He didn’t however stay at the design school for long, instead dropping out to take a job at a boutique. This was the opportunity he needed because he was given a small space within the boutique from which he sold his own designs. Subsequently, the fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman noticed his talent and approached the young designer. She asked if Kors would present his designs to her buyers and from that moment, the Michael Kors brand has been on the fashion map.
Michael Kors TodayDespite facing bankruptcy in 1993, Michael Kors is one of the fashion world’s top brands. By 1997, the designer had got his company back on track and he was named as a designer for Celine. Today, celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift and Michelle Obama proudly wear Michael Kors. Although Kors began by designing women’s apparel, you’ll now find men’s clothing, handbags, shoes and of course Michael Kors glasses all crafted by the designer.
