for an interview with Michael Kors from WWD's Footwear News. An excerpt:
FN: How much has “Project Runway” played into the success of your business?
MK: We never had 12-year-olds before, that’s for sure. It stretched our audience. Now it stretches from women who are 70 and are plugged in and will wear sexy shoes in a heartbeat to the girl who is 17 and not “Barbie-girly” and wants something sophisticated. We certainly had a following [before the show], but I don’t know if everyone who walked through the mall knew Michael Kors. The interesting thing about our stores now is that she’ll walk by and say, “Oh, Michael Kors. I know who he is, but what is he really about?”
