Michael Kors began his career in fashion at the age of 19 designing and merchandising a collection
for the renowned boutique, Lothar's, in New York City. The success of these
clothes caught the
attention of the fashion press, prompting Kors to venture out on his own. In 1981, the Michael Kors
label was formed; his first women's collection was launched at Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue,
among other stores. Since his collection was established, it has never strayed from Kors' initial vision
of chic, luxurious American sportswear.
In Fall 2004, Kors unveiled his latest collection, Michael Michael Kors, to an unprecedented launch in over
350 doors nationwide. This new collection introduced for the first time a
collection of fine timepieces from Michael Kors. These fine timepieces are
true to the Michael Kors style and vision, and are perfect complements to the
jet-set, luxury lifestyle. The Michael Michael Kors label includes women's ready to wear, swimwear and accessories
including handbags, small leathergoods, belts and shoes; men's sportswear, tailored clothing, dress shirts and
neckwear; as well as eyewear and timepieces for both men and women.
