They exude a confident practicality that many designer labels do not have. What inspires Michael Kors designs? Take the time to view the TIME magazine interview embedded below to find out.

From his signature rain boots to his 3/4 length down jacket, Michael Kors designs are practical and eminently wearable.

The Michael Kors Logo and Reputation

The Michael Kors logo -- the M and the K intertwined -- stands for casual luxury and simple elegance. Ease of use together with simplicity of design are the hallmarks of the Michael Kors look.

Michael Kors is a household name and a fashion icon, and it may seem that his current status was achieved overnight, without planning or effort. In fact, it was a long hard road. His two decades in the business of fashion design are the result of continued attention to detail and unswerving dedication to the ideals of American sportswear.

Here is Kors take on fashion and the people who wear it: “No matter how much fashion changes, what women want is always the same: clothes that not only feel comfortable on, but that allow them to feel comfortable in any situation. They want to know they look good—no matter where they are, what they are doing, or what kind of shape they’re in.” (Excerpt from

Kors learned all about what a woman wants in clothing from his own mother. When he was growing up in Long Island, Michael Kors' mother took him along on her frequent forays into shopping. By the time he was ten, the young Michael Kors was designing vests and T-shirts for the girls who lived in his neighborhood. While his mother had hoped he would go into show business, Kors' talent for fashion was evident early on.

Today Michael Kors is a name that is known world-wide as leader in fashion design. His may seem like an overnight success stories, but in fact it was years in the making.

Take this three quarter length down jacket. It is comfortable, it is warm and it easy to wear. It flatters the figure of any woman, and it does not require one to have unusual proportions in order to carry off the look.

Michael Kors designs are the sorts of clothes that you would want to wear, anyway, even if they weren't by a famous designer.

Gowns and dresses

So does Michael Kors design only casual wear. What about dresses and gowns? Yes, he designs more formal wear as well, but even his gowns have a sporty look that goes with his special take on style.
