Great news for animal lovers – accessible premium brand Michael Kors has pledged to eliminate the use of fur in their designs.

The brand has received international praise for the move.

CEO John D Idol said in a statement that technological advancements in the production of faux fur mean that the same luxurious appearance and texture can be created without harming sentient animals.

‘This decision marks a new chapter as our company continues to evolve its use of innovative materials,’ he said in a statement to Business of Fashion.

This decision will extend to the brand Jimmy Choo, which was recently acquired by MK.

‘This is a wonderful holiday gift for fur-bearing animals and follows many years of protests at Michael Kors fashion shows and boutiques by PETA and other animal rights groups,’ said animal rights giant PETA.

‘Today’s shoppers no longer want to buy or wear the skins of animals who were caged and then electrocuted or bludgeoned to death,’ PETA's Paula Moore said in a blog post praising the move.

‘Michael Kors is the third luxury fashion brand in recent months to realise that fur is a dead-end.'

'This fall, both Gucci and BCBG Max Azria made headlines around the world when they announced that they were ditching fur.’



It looks like Michael Kors is going to be the new owner of Jimmy Choo.

The US designer has agreed to buy the luxury shoe brand for $1.2 billion (€1.02b), however, it promises that no changes will be made to the British footwear.

Jimmy Choo went up for auction in April after its majority owner, JAB, decided to focus on profits in "consumer goods."

And even though Michael Kors has been struggling with declining sales, the brand believes that acquiring Jimmy Choo will boost revenue.

The New York Times commented saying that this will be a "source of growth in an increasingly competitive retail landscape" for the American company.

Speaking of the decision, Michael Kors said: “Jimmy Choo is an iconic premier luxury brand that offers distinctive footwear, handbags and other accessories.

“We admire the glamorous style and trend-setting nature of Jimmy Choo designs,” he added.



It's just about been a year since Ashley Graham graced the cover of Sports Illustrated, gaining the title as the first plus size model to ever do so, while simultaneously making huge strides for fat acceptance in the fashion and beauty industry. 

Since then, the model's star has continued to rise. She has starred in countless campaigns, been featured on the cover of Vogue and was immortalised in plastic in the form of a mini-me Barbie doll

Now, the model is taking on New York Fashion Week, and has become the first plus size woman to walk for fashion mega-brand Michael Kors

Walking alongside the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, the model looked amazing on the runway. 

"Thank you for the opportunity and showing that beauty comes in many different forms," the model said, captioning a snap from the show on Instagram. 

"Don't let my runway face fool you, this is what really happens backstage! Thank you again Michael Kors and thanks to my boo Bella for giving me tips on my walk!" she said, on another image of her and Bella Hadid.

Ashley wasn't the only curvy model to be featured on a mainstream fashion catwalk at NYFW this season. 

Plus size model Candice Huffine modelled two looks at the Prabal Gurung show on Sunday evening.

"Thank you Prabal, I love how you see the future for all women!" the model said on Instagram.

By the looks of things, NYFW is ready to embrace women of all shapes and sizes, and it's about time. 



Saving up for the hottest designer bag can be quite a chore, and in the run up to Christmas ain't nobody got time for that. 

Luckily the High Street is often on our side, and with party season looming on the horizon we all need some autumnal arm candy.

Michael Kors is one of Ireland's fave handbag designers, and the mega brand created another hit with it's Sloan quilted shoulder bag.

The luxurious velvet finish and gold hardware make this cross body the most coveted A/W piece out there, but like all designer bags, it comes at a price.

Going for €350, it's definitely out of our already stretched Christmas budgets. 

Luckily, high-street accessories haven Parfois is rushing to our rescue, with their delightfully opulent velvet offering.


This Christmas party creation is totally twinning with Michael Kors, down to the gold and velvet chain strap, quilting and shape.

If you're not all about emptying your bank account in favour of a designer drop, this Parfois piece is a total sartorial steal at just €24.99.

We dare anyone to tell the difference!



Look, even the best and most skilled of us make mistakes… and high heels are hard. Especially when they're six-feet high with platforms that resemble red bricks.

Now, we love Bella Hadid here in Shemazing! HQ, she's fierce and her style is totally on point, not to mention she's a total boss when it comes to walking the runway.

That's why we all still love her even though she went splat at the Michael Kors fashion show last night.

When she began to strut her stuff she was perfect, but of course there was about a million turns and corners in the runway (well, three) and the girl just couldn't handle it.

She totally regained herself afterwards though, and kept a smile on her face through it all.

Fair play Bella, because we probably would have crumbled in the corner.



It's fashion week, so we can only expect there to be a few daring looks on the catwalk.

But one look we didn't anticipate was Kendall Jenner going completely make-up free in the Michael Kors show.

The 20-year-old was fresh and clean, as she donned a silver dress and matching shoes.

On the Michael Kors website, it says that Kendall's look is 'windswept' which is why she's rocking the messy bed-head look, too. 

We're all for paired-back make-up trend, so maybe this will really pull it through this year.

And, let's be honest, Kendall totally rocked the fresh-faced look.



‘Round these parts, we’re BIG fans of Michelle Keegan.

That definitely includes her seriously stylish wardrobe too.

From her always on-fleek approach to the red-carpet, to her beach-side attire – not to mention THAT incredible custom-made wedding dress – Ms Keegan is one fashionable addition to current showbiz circuit.

However, proving that just about everyone can have an off-day, the 28-year-old looked somewhat older than her years at the TV Choice awards, which took place last night in London’s Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.

Attending with her husband, Mark Wright, also 28, the actress donned a bright fuchsia dress by the diffusion line Michael, Michael Kors.

Michelle accessorised with dance-style metallic and purple sandals and also carried a pale box clutch.

And while we can see the midi-hem, high-neck with ¾-length sleeve number working well for a day-time event, it seemed out-of-place among the glamorous red-carpet gowns worn by her fellow guests.

Still, Mark managed to up the ante with a smart grey jacket with subtle pin-stripe, sleek black pants and a low-set matching waistcoat.

The former reality TV star finished off his outfit with a black pocket-square and skinny black tie complete with tie-pin.

Other attendees to sport formal wear included BGT presenter Amanda Holden, who looked incredible in full-length, figure-hugging black, and Towie stars James Argent and Lydia Bright – both of whom were certainly dressed-to-impress.



Michael Kors is a man on a mission.

The fashion designer has launched a new campaign in which he is calling on the fashion world to help put an end to world hunger.

As part of his ‘Watch Hunger Stop’ campaign, Kors has designed a special T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan, and has pledged to donate 100 meals to children in need for every time that someone posts a social media photo of themselves wearing the shirt.

Kors is calling on as many people as possible to pick up the T-shirt and share their photo to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #WatchHungerStop.

The T-shirts are available for free in selected Michael Kors stores worldwide and are available until Oct 31st.

A number of famous faces from the fashion world have already pledged their support to the campaign, including Chrissy Teigan, Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel.

Fair play to Mr Kors, using his profile to raise awareness for an extremely worthy cause.



Piper Perabo showed off a glimpse of her wedding dress recently, following her nuptials to Stephen Kay.

The couple tied the knot in New York City where the bride was seen wearing an unusual silver Michael Kors dress with a long buttermilk-coloured veil.

The Coyote Ugly actress beamed as she posed for photos with her new husband outside of the Merchant’s House Museum, where the ceremony took place.

Piper has played the role of Annie Walker in hit show, Covert Affairs, for the past four years.

Congratulations to the happy couple on their wedding news!

Do you like the bride’s style choice for her special day? 



Last week, American designer Michael Kors officially became a billionaire. Yes, we said billionaire.

Customers of the brand may not be so surprised at this news however as his bags, purses and other accessories are a relatively accessible price in comparison to other designer brands. This accessible price does not come at the expense of quality either.

Michael Kors show at this year’s New York Fashion Week only furthered the designer’s popularity and brought in a multitude of famous faces such as Michael Douglas, Freida Pinto, Blake Lively and Rose Byrne.

The collection was described as “a blend of urban polish and laid-back Californian ease”.

The show featured lots of chunky knits and layers as well as sheer flowy blouses and billowing skirts.
