Portrait I took of Michael Kors for Vogue 1981“~
I started my business when I was 21 years old, no experience, no idea how I was going to do it. I just knew the kind of clothes I wanted to make. The next thing I knew there were people sewing in my apartment, racks over my bed, and I was doing a trunk show at Bergdorf Goodman. When you’re young, you don't really think to yourself, ‘Oh, I can't.’ You just dive right in.” -MK
