Last night at 92Y, I listened to Michael Kors talk about his beginnings in the fashion business, his marriage to Lance LePere, working with celebrities and his start with reality television show “Project Runway”. With all mentioned and more than I was unable to catch, he believes that there is such thing as balance in the business and that one can truly have it all. I find him truly inspirational.
Michael Kors, born Karl Anderson Jr., grew up in suburban Long Island and worked at WWD, a magazine that he remembers on the newsstands in Merrick.
He sold his first sketches to his friend's father who owned UFO Jeans.
Kors recalled his friend's father “Can we buy those sketches?”
He bought the sketches and Kors was paid on the spot. He was just 16-years-old.
