I have always been an avid follower of this New York born designer, however I must admit that my friend’s influence compelled me choose this fashion powerhouse. Her obsession with Michael Kors’ accessories made me realize how many “Kors Whores” there are out in the world.
Born Karl Anderson, Jr. on August 9, 1959 on Long Island, Michael Kors manifested his name and his destiny becoming one of the most recognizable faces in fashion today. The Michael Kors brand is an ingenious amalgamation of Calvin Klein in the late1970s and Coach in the 1980s. He has manufactured the definitive American womens sportswear house with must- have accessories and a menswear line that kicks ass too. You can’t turn your head without seeing a woman touting something Michael Kors (whether it’s bootleg or not is another post).
Before Kors came into the homes of the nation courtesy of Project Runway, the most famous Long Islander was probably Billy Joel. Now the “Piano Man” has to move over because that title definitely belongs to MK. When you have every woman from The First Lady to Jane Doe sporting your duds, you know you are the man.
