Fashion designer Michael Kors will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Thursday June 10th 2010 by The Fragrance Foundation in recognition of his major contributions to the American perfume industry. He has signed three successful fragrance franchises since 2000: the Michael Kors signature range for both women and men, the Michael Kors Island collection which debuted in 2005 and most recently the Very Hollywood Michael Kors perfume.
"The Hall of Fame award is voted on by The Foundation's Board of Directors and is presented to an individual who has brought extraordinary ingenuity, creativity, dedication and inner resources to bear, not only to their company's success but to the fragrance industry as a whole."...
Michael Kors said "Fragrance is probably the most intimate thing I will ever create. It's my fingerprint, so I am deeply honored that The Fragrance Foundation has chosen to recognize me." Kors also took the opportunity to expound on his perfume and fashion philosophies which are the same to him,
"I think about fragrance the same way as fashion; it should be treated as a wardrobe. My signature Michael Kors fragrance is the little black dress, chic and timeless. The Island scents are your crisp white shirts, the feeling of relaxed luxury. Very Hollywood Michael Kors is the gold dress. It's all about that super glamorous, indulgent moment."
