The New God is a book of portraits in progress, scheduled to be published in 2013. It is a portrait of a generation engaged in creating the future from nothing, emerging triumphant and beautiful from war and recession. The work portrays the spiritual and unstoppable face of my generation.

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”.

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.
