Michael Kors will be presenting his 40th anniversary collection for Fall/Winter 2021 tomorrow, April 20, at 9pm (Singapore time).
Streamed live from New York’s Broadway, the multi-layered digital show is Kors’ tribute the city’s hard-hit theatre district. “When I was starting out at 21, I could never have imagined I’d be here, 40 years later, sharing my collection with the whole world,” says the designer and theatre enthusiast. “I’ve been fortunate to do what I love my whole life, and I want to use this celebration to spotlight another institution that means a great deal to me, and that could use our support—the New York theatre community. I’m grateful and excited to share this anniversary collection, and to continue celebrating the city that made me who I am.”
Besides a traffic-stopping fashion parade, there will also be a special performance by singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright. In support of New York’s theatre, the Michael Kors company has pledged a donation to The Actors Fund, a national human services organisation that fosters stability and resiliency, and provides a safety net for performing arts and entertainment professionals over their lifespan. Kors will also be making a personal donation to the fund.
