Michael Kors

Michael Kors, one of America's most famous exports was born in Long Island, NY in 1953. In his early years he developed an interest in fashion encouraged by his mother. In 1977 he enrolled at the NY Institute of Fashion, though his concentration only allowed him to last 9 months. He preferred the cut and thrust offered by a space in the famous Bergdorf Goodman Fifth Avenue Department store. His success at BGs was nurtured by the store Fashion Director Dawn Mello. In 1981 Kors launched his first womenswear collection and was huge success at all the important NY stores such as Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Saks as well as his adopted home at Bergdorfs. His career was not all uphill however and a bankruptcy was to occur 1993. Following this, Kors took the less risky option of becoming Creative Director at the famous Paris fashion house CELINE. During his tenure he revived the fortunes of the label and left CELINE in 2003 in very good stead. Kors returned to New York, gathered a new creative team and began work on the creation of two products for which he has become famous and indeed wealthy with Forbes reporting Kors as a billionaire in 2014. The Michael Kors handbag line and watch collection has become a worldwide success propelling Kors onto Fortune magazines list of 100 Most Influential People in the World.

The MK eyewear license was recently acquired by the world's largest Eyewear manufacturer; Luxottica. With an annual turnover of over 9 bn euro, an employer of over 75,000 worldwide, Luxottica has made a significant creative and manufacturing investment into their new license. As the outright owner of Ray Ban, Persol and Oakley, Luxottica also manufacture under license for Chanel, Prada, Bvlgari, Miu Miu and many more. It was this stable of brands and the undoubted ability to take his eyewear collection to the next level that persuaded Kors to move from the US firm Marchon across the pond to the Italian giant. Although a mega corporation, Luxottica are able to develop relatively small creative teams in their Milan headquarters. These skilled designers, right at the top of the game work closely both with the Michael Kors design teams and indeed the man himself. They collaborate to ensure that the twice yearly eyewear releases are closely matched and inspired by the apparel and accessory items.
