Michael Kors offers ‘Skywalk’ show
The 53-year-old designer commemorated the official launch of his Chinese store on Friday with a fashion show “situated above the streets of Xinyi” according to WWD.
The website reports that the specially designed runway was built inside a “skywalk bridge” and featured “local” models, who graced the runway wearing selected looks from Kors’ fall line.
The fashion show was attended by a range of Asian stars, including Hong Kong actress Angelababy.
Kors’ new store is a 2,800-square-foot unit inside Taipei 101.
John Idol – chairman and chief executive officer of the luxe label – aims to open more shops in the region in the near future.
Kors recently spoke of his extreme work ethic. The star prides himself on being hard-working and taking his job seriously.
“I’m a dervish! I’m either a dervish or I’m collapsed! I have no middle ground. I don’t understand people who have a normal nine-to-five job. I’m either literally passed out on a beach with a stack of terrible tabloids or working 19 hours a day,” he laughed.
