History of Michael Kors Label
Michael Kors is an American fashion and accessories brand founded by Michael David Kors in 1981. Michael Kors was born Karl Anderson Jr. in Long Island. He later changed his name after his mother married his step father. Michael showed keen interest and talent in fashion from a very young age. As a teenager he persued his passion for desing further and created clothes from his parents basement. Later the young designer enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, before moving on to work at a boutique on 57th Street in Manhattan.
Though the fashion label began as a passion project for Kors, he was pushed to follow his dreams by Dawn Mello, the fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman at the time. She noticed Kors as he worked in the boutique across from the luxury department store. Mello saw his potential and invited him to show his line at Bergdorf. Launching a womens line first, the brand expanded and introduced a men’s wear line in 2002. Though the brand faced difficulties in the begining, since 1981, Michael Kors has become one of the most well known fashion labels in the world. Kors’ designs stand out with what made him popular in the first place, the ability to hone into what makes his customer feel confident and truly themselves.
