“I think to be empathetic is the greatest gift you can have as a designer. Hopefully, people will look at me and say, ‘He really loved women.’” Michael Kors (1)
Today in 2013, Michael Kors was honored by FIT with the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. The famous designer was recognized for his extensive work that beautifully defines and exudes American women’s fashion.
A previous FIT student, Kors continues to support the school by offering a $1,000,000 scholarship to one lucky FIT Fashion Design student each year based on excellence and financial need. The student also earns the opportunity to intern with Michael Kors during their time at the fashion school. The generous scholarship and mentorship reaffirms Kors’ dedication and passion to fashion.
