Designer Michael Kors talks about the Michael Kors Collection, diversity and giving back
How would you describe your approach to designing fashion?
“I’ve always designed with a woman in mind – what she’s doing, where she’s going, and what she needs to look and feel fabulous. So while our processes have changed as we’ve expanded the business, my approach to design and my focus on quality and enduring style has always stayed consistent.”
Can you describe the quintessential Michael Kors man and woman?
“The Michael Kors customer is always on the go. They have a polished, modern sensibility, and love clothes that are pragmatic yet luxurious.”
In the Spring 2018 Collection you took us on vacation. What prompted this relaxed, laid-back vibe?
“I think we all like to be a little bit more casual when the weather warms up. For this collection, I wanted to take that relaxed, laid-back attitude of coastal life, but imbue it with artisanal details and a sense of glamour that also translates into big city living.”
