“There are two kinds of designers: ones who are very happy locked in their office surrounded by their coterie. The last thing they need to do is to go to a trunk show; they’d go running for the hills. I not only enjoy it, I think, how do you design things that are applicable to life – unless you live it?” – Michael Kors
