Fashion is like food! Some people like sushi, others think hamburgers are divine! People like different things!— Michael Kors
The most tremendous Michael Kors quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you
I've always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman's outfit.
A man in a well tailored suit will always shine brighter than a guy in an off-the-rack suit.
The perfect accessory can make the difference between looking blah and totally to die for
You make sexiness strong by balancing it out: something familiar with something unfamiliar, something masculine with something feminine, something streamlined with something rococo. It's a Yin and Yang. Women are made of layers, your mood shifts, no one is neither one extreme nor the other.
Great style means having a point of view, but evolving your look is even more important. Rushing to embrace every trend will leave you fashionable, but not stylish
For me, true luxury can be caviar or a day with no meetings, no appointments and no schedule.
People shouldn't notice what you're wearing before they notice you.
You want people to register you first. 'Oh, what a nice jacket' should be an afterthought if you're doing it right.
I think quality will be increasingly important-we're moving away from a time of fast fashion. But really, the only constant in fashion is that you must keep moving forward, otherwise you'll be left behind.
The best design teams are not people who are exactly the same.
..otherwise you're just sitting and telling, 'You're fabulous.' 'No, you're fabulous.'
My legacy would be that you don't have to give up anything.
You can be chic but have a sense of humor, you can be sexy but comfortable, you can be timeless but fresh.
I'm definitely curious. I love pop culture. I'm glued to it. I can watch garbage TV, but then I can also watch great theater.
I hate the idea that you have to give up anything.
I think you can be powerful and still be provocative, you can be smart and have a softness, you can have all of it.
I can sketch up a storm, and I'm very involved in how clothes are constructed, but I have a short attention span.
Give me Caviar Kaspia and give me a hamburger. I love the two extremes.
The minute it gets to a runway, you're tempted to do some high jinks.
I don't want to show something I won't produce. I want people to wear the clothes I show.
I feel unbelievably fortunate. How many people get to do what they always wanted to do and do well with it and continue to be surprised and see amazing places and meet amazing people?
Women are much more comfortable making their own style rules now.
They want pieces that will make their busy lives easier.
I think the trick is, how do you spend time doing it but make it look like you haven't spent time doing it? Over the years you look at women like Lauren Hutton and everyone says: 'She just pulled her hair back and ran out of the door.' I've been in fittings with Lauren and she definitely thinks about it. She just knows how to make it look easy.
I grew up in a family of people who were obsessed with fashion.
I grew up surrounded by these tough, ballsy, strong women.
They were also adoring women, but they were the kind of women who would argue over what kind of pants you were wearing or the color of your nail polish.
I not only enjoy it, I think, how do you design things that are applicable to life - unless you live it?
If you want to have longevity, then I think that you have to have a point of view, but at the same time still be elastic. Things evolve, the world changes, but people have to know you for who you are so they know what you stand for.
It's an unbelievably tight race for hideous today.
It's funny when I hear people complain - particularly about the most fabulous parts of being a designer, like when you're getting ready to work on a show. I don't even know that I'm tired. I could stay up for six days straight! No drugs, no coffee, no nothing. I'm just so excited.
Every woman should own a shirtdress
Fashion is not like the movie business, where you can have two great projects in a row and then say, "You know what? I'm going to take off eight months." What am I going to tell people? Wear last year's clothes?
People always think that designers hate each other.
And we're certainly a competitive lot, but we also enjoy each other's company. No one else knows what you're going through other than another designer.
The greenest thing you could do in fashion, is to buy something great that you’re going to use for years
My apartment looks like no one lives in it.
American women often fall into the trap of, "Oh, these are my weekend clothes.
These are my work clothes. This is what I wear at night." It's so old-fashioned. The French are not afraid of their luxury. Americans can be so puritanical and think, "That's my special-occasion bag." Whereas, for a French woman, it's her everyday bag.
I think the older I get, the more I realize that the ultimate luxury is time.
You need to be curious one way or another as a designer.
Your eye has to stay curious. I look at people and think about how they live. I think about bodies.
When you try on something, you have to ask yourself, 'How many ways could I wear this? Could I wear it to work? To dinner or drinks? Will it span the seasons' If you have to think too hard about those questions, then skip it.
In early days, I showed everything I made.
There was no such thing as editing a collection. In the '80s, it got to the point where we'd have shows with a hundred looks. You'd want to order a pizza before it was over!
Learn to invest in the best quality you can afford and wear pieces in different ways.
Let's be honest - look what Hollywood at 18 is.
I think a lot of women have too many mini skirts in their closets.
Americans are always a little bit insecure.
The biggest lesson that I've learned is that fashion is this tightrope where you have to be consistent but inconsistent. You need the connective thread but at the same time you need a sense of surprise.
No human being should wear tight satin.
Ultimately, clean lines have greater longevity, which women appreciate, and to which they can add their own personality
I don't even think of going to Europe as going to another country now.
China is exciting because it is an extremely curious and interested market.
What more can a designer ask for? The client here is bold and willing to try new things, which a country with a long fashion history wouldn't dare. France or England is weighed down by all these rules, elaborate etiquette, do's and don'ts. Things here move incredibly quickly.
The craziest thing about fashion people in general, not just designers, is that it's always, "Oh my God, you lost weight! I love your hair!" Or "Oh, you're so tan!" Or, "You're so skinny! I love your shoes!" These are fashion icebreakers. Everyone's always looking at each other.
Seventy per cent of the clothes you own should be meat and potatoes.
Thirty per cent should be icing and fluff - that's colour, pattern, shine, accessories. Too many women get the proportions the other way round, then can't figure out why they can't get dressed.
Put on a trench, you're suddenly Audrey Hepburn walking along the Seine.
I know what women look good in. I don't think the rules ever change.
When I'm not working I'm a slug - a full slug.
I am not good at the in-between. I'm either fever-pitched or want to just pass out on a beach with a really sleazy book and eat a cheeseburger.
