THE DECADES | CHAPTER 3: THE 2000’S
One of our favorite decades for MICHAEL KORS. This video is beyond fun and Michael Kors was and still is, at the “top of his game” for those wonderful 10 years. Sit back and enjoy and learn how style evolved into art. The decade defined what Michael Kors called, “Sport, Sexy, Glam.” He had muses of American style ranging from Jackie Kennedy to Diana Ross. Throw in a dash of Bianca Jagger and Lauren Hutton, and the mix was explosive success.
MICHAEL KORS understood the power of dressing powerful women who dictate life on their own terms. Women who don’t easily compromise. Women who lead, versus follow. Women who don’t judge, but build their empires on foundations of love and elegance. These were the queens of “jet set” style.
Other triumphs included the launching of his first store, the launch of fragrances and his signature accessories, and the launch of a CFDA awarded menswear line. The decade saw the launch of watches and eyewear too, as Michael Kors expressed his design genius into that realm too.
In 2004, he launched his famous MK line which included sportswear, handbags, and shoes and understood the power of a woman to become “power glam.”
Taking his obsession and translating it into a style for women and men who want quality chic, with an eye on “jet set” style. Pieces that last too. Wardrobe gems from MICHAEL KORS can evolve your look and make you timeless.
Then he landed the judge spot on Project Runway which lasted 10 incredible, witty, and memorable seasons as a judge. Michael Kors always gave loving commentary.
Then he landed the ultimate “Muse of The Century,” by having the honor and pleasure of dressing First Lady Michele Obama for her official White House photo portrait, while she was America’s glamourous First Lady.
The rest of the story is incredible, and part of the American conversation. Especially for those who make hard work, love, and style their mantra. We love MICHAEL KORS and so will you.
