Mr. Kors, the highly successful American fashion designer, was born in 1959 in Long Island. His career started early. At nineteen, he received a giant design assignment where he got to design a collection for the fashion boutique Lothar's in New York. His assignment was a great success. For Michael Kors, this was thé time to establish his own label (1981). His style is very recognizable: luxurious, sporty, and typically American. Casual, with a timeless look. Both the bags and shoes by Michael Kors are a delight to every woman. If you're a fan of his work, you might want to take a look at Michael by Michael Kors too.
