NEW YORK — Michael Kors is giving back to his alma mater. The designer made a $1 million gift to the Fashion Institute of Technology, which will establish the Michael Kors Endowed Scholarship at the school.
The new scholarship will go to a student each year who demonstrates exceptional talent in fashion design, and will cover the recipient’s entire bachelor’s degree costs, including tuition, housing and books. It will also feature a mentorship element with internship opportunities at Michael Kors.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
