Michael Kors - Luxury fashion design since 1980
Michael Kors started out selling his designs, originally womenswear, in a small boutique in New York City. He was discovered when Dawn Mello, a fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman, saw his designs and asked Kors to come and show his collections to the board at Bergdorf Goodman. Kors agreed, and the rest is history. In 1981, Michael Kors started selling his womenswear collections and designs at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and Nieman Marcus. His luxury fashion brand grew and was incorporated in 2002. Kors has added a men's line, and became well known for women's handbags. Today Michael Kors has over 237 retail stores, and in 2011 reported a net revenue of $1.2 billion.
