The SS19 Michael Kors Collection Runway Show
Global getaway was the theme of Michael Kors’ Spring 2019 runway show, that took place at Pier 17, in the city’s historic and newly revitalized Seaport District. The show celebrated the spirit and style of the modern globe-trotter.
“I wanted the show to feel like a global getaway,” says Michael Kors. “I find travel to be the ultimate inspiration and this collection takes a little bit from all of my favorite destinations around the world. And showing at Pier 17, a place that emphasizes the island nature of our city, surrounded by the optimistic, colorful artwork of Christina Zimpel, was the best way to transport our guests.”
Zimpel, originally from Perth Western Australia, previously worked as an Art Director of several publications, before turning her eye towards painting and drawing. Her original artwork featured prominently at this morning’s runway show- guests were able to spend time in a gallery space featuring twenty-two pieces of work before taking their seats for the show, which were also wrapped in Zimpel’s work.
The collection was awash with colour play and bold prints, giving it a juxtaposing of creative concepts- creating distinctive looks of style.
