The fall 2011 season will be remembered for the tragic fall of a rare fashion genius, John Galliano. The events that culminated in the designer’s dismissal from Dior rocked the fashion world, casting an imposing shadow over the Paris collections.
Yet fashionwise, this proved a stellar season, the good news arriving in myriad ways. It came in the 30th anniversary of one of the most loved people in the business, Michael Kors. His is a tale of resiliency, positive thinking and the credo, know thyself. At a time when others of his generation won accolades for big-time artistry or outrageous antics, Kors kept to his vision of approachable chic. His muse: the sexy tomboy. “I’ve always been convinced that you could be sexy and sporty at the same time,” he told WWD recently. For fall, he kept to that ethos, working in a fab soupçon of Studio 54.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
