Michael Kors and Zoe Saldana at the Met Ball [Rex]
You may think you know your Michael Kors and can spot a Selma bag from a mile off, but how much do you really know about the man behind the world's fastest-growing fashion brands? Mr Kors hit the Met Ball steps on Monday night with Zoe Saldana on his arm, but there's no rest for the designer as he has jetted to Shanghai to talk shop.
At 2pm this afternoon the designer will talk about the brand, the future of fashion and the fashion industry in China live from Shanghai with Business of Fashion editor Imran Amed. The good news is you can watch the 45-minute talk straight from the Jinart Art Gallery in Shanghai right here on Grazia Daily via the live stream below.
While we wait let's give you a quick run through Mr Kors' CV, shall we? The designer grew up in Long Island and started studying fashion at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, but then dropped out to work at the Manhattan boutique Lothar’s. He was then picked up by Dawn Mello of Bergdorf Goodman and soon after debuted his own label at New York Fashion Week. In 1997 he began designing for Céline and was the brand's first creative director, leaving in 2003 focus on his own brand. Michael Kors is now one of the fastest growing brands in history with an A List fan club including Gwyneth Paltrow and Zoe Saldana.
