Michael Kors is a beloved American designer who is perhaps better known for his apparel collections than his baubles. Kors, who was born and raised on Long Island in New York, is best known for his ability to design classic, American sportswear for women. While many high profile designers come out of Europe, Kors has long flourished as an American born and bred designer. Kors started out his career in fashion at the ripe age of nineteen, studying design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. In 1981, he launched his first collection, the Michael Kors womenswear line, which was immediately picked up by buyers at Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Kors was an instantaneous hit. Though his success at home in America was building, Kors chose to relocate to Paris, and worked for years as the ready to wear designer of French fashion house Celine. It was here, during his tenure as the creative director for the house, that Kors discovered a love and talent for designing accessories.
Michael Kors clothing is worn by numerous celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Obama, Heidi Klum, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Garner and more. His accessories, meanwhile, continue to fly off the shelves – and his watches are no exception. The designer who started in sportswear is now a pro at churning out watch designs that perfectly complement his womenswear collections. Looking for sporty looks for ladies? Michael Kors has you covered in the watch department. Michael Kors watches have recently become the top of the line favorite for the new crop of personal style bloggers proliferating the internet landscape, and for good reason – the chic, stylish timepieces are fairly affordable, especially in the watch world.
