DESIGNER OF THE YEAR – 2021:
We celebrate DOTY 2021 with the wonderful story behind MICHAEL KORS. Michael Kors was born of the 1980s. For those, ignorant of history; NYC in the 1980s was the “Wild-Wild West” for sure. Not a place for the weak or timid. The decade that gave birth to MADONNA, MTV, the superstardom of MICHAEL JACKSON and PRINCE. The music and art were hot and Michael Kors took his dream and gave life to it.
Journey back in this wonderful video and learn a lot. Special thanks and love to our DOTY 2021 Award Winner, Michael Kors. We love him and his vision, and collections.

Travel back in time as we celebrate 40 years of Michael Kors with our new video series, THE DECADES, that reveal and revel in the designer’s illustrious past. It all began in New York City in 1981: Michael was discovered by Bergdorf Goodman’s fashion director, Dawn Mello, and began designing his own collection, which quickly gained the attention of New York Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily and U.S. Vogue. It was during this time that fashion ushered in the age of the supermodel, with Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell all walking in Michael’s runway shows. Watch now for an inside look at the designer’s early years during this incredible moment in American fashion. Then, stay tuned for Chapter 2! And don’t forget to watch the #MichaelKorsCollection Fall/Winter 2021 40th Anniversary Runway Show premiering live on April 20th at 9 AM (ET). #MK40
